Briefs on human-wildlife conflict in India for grassroots legal professionals released

The Centre for Policy Research-Namati Environmental Justice Program ((CPR-Namati), a New Delhi-based advocacy group which prepares network of grassroots legal professionals who research questions regarding environment law implementation, has with support from Duleep Matthai Nature Conservation Trust prepared handouts on the legal mechanisms available in human wildlife conflict in Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Odisha and Karnataka.
These handouts entail, says a CPR-Namati note, a brief overview of the present status of human wildlife conflict, the measures taken by the Centre and states to tackle this, and compensatory mechanisms available in case of human wildlife conflict.
Available in Hindi, Gujarati, Odia and Kannada (to be released shortly), CPR-Namati has simultaneously announced the release of material on the legal framework for conservation and protection areas. This material -- providing information on the legal provisions under which these areas are formed, the spaces available for the local communities, and the monitoring mechanisms -- is also available in Hindi, Odia, Gujarati and Kannada.
