Closing the Enforcement Gap: Groundtruthing of Environmental Violations in Sarguja, Chhattisgarh

By: Centre for Policy Research (CPR)-Namati Environmental Justice Program, Janabhivyakti, Hasdeo Arand Bachao Sangharsh Samiti (HABSS)

This document is the second in the series of community led groundtruthing exercises carried out by the Centre for Policy Research (CPR)-Namati Environmental Justice Program in partnership with Janabhivyakti and Hasdeo Arand Bachao Sangharsh Samiti (HABSS). It highlights the process and findings of an exercise where the representatives of a community affected by mining in central India tried to understand whether the impacts of dust pollution, water contamination and felling of trees faced by them were arising out of the non-compliance of law. They systematically collected evidence and filed well drafted complaints to the concerned institutions who could affect remedies. As the final report establishes, this process led to positive official remedies in some cases. In others, the follow up is ongoing.
