We work towards fair sharing of natural resources and ensuring better livelihoods for forest-dependent communities

Marginalised communities have the lowest levels of literacy, health and food security in the country. They live in some of the most resource-rich states and call forests their home.     

Oxfam India works towards fair sharing of natural resources, specifically land, minerals and energy, and ensuring better livelihoods for tribals and other forest-dependent communities.

 

In particular, we work with our partners to improve the implementation of progressive legislations such as the Forest Rights Act, 2006, and the Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Amendment Act, 2015.

 

Access to energy plays a large role in the development of livelihoods and delivery of healthcare and education to the remotest parts of India. Our work harnesses renewable energy to benefit local economies that are dependent on forest produce. Based on evidence, we advocate for the inclusion of rural health and education in the renewable energy priorities of the country.
