Interactions with Communities & CSOs
Maximum environmental damage is happening in the backyard of the country e.g. Chhatisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha etc in rural and forest areas, away from scrutiny of the people who know and understand some of the issues. Local communities and local Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) are the one who need to be supported with information, knowledge and guidance to understand the complexities of the environmental issues, environmental laws and encouraged to protect their livelihood, life and environment, and, in the process, if need be, protest and litigate. eRc executives travel across the country to meet people and organisations and guide and support them to the extent possible.
