Oxfam India’s programme on Fair Sharing of Natural Resources is aimed at marginalised communities to realise their rights through rightful access, control and sustainable management of natural
resources. This gives them voice and agency to transform power structures and reduce inequality and injustice. Oxfam India works, in Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Odisha, for the proper implementation of the Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dweller’s (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act 2006, also known as the Forest Rights Act (FRA). In Jharkhand, Oxfam India is working with Naya Savera Vikas Kendra (NSVK) since 2009 to support forest dwellers to claim their rights through FRA and access, conserve, and manage natural resources.
