Celebration of Resistance - NFFPFW

 

  Summary

 

 

About NFFPFW:
The National Forum for Forest Peoples and Forest Workers was formed in September 1998, at the 3rd national consultation held at Ranchi, Jharkhand. It was created out of a need for solidarity and national level advocacy expressed by groups working with forest-dependent people all over the country- to assert traditional rights over forests and forest produce.

The objectives of the National Conference are:
1) Taking stock of the last four years of the activities of the NFFPFW
2) Strengthening the forest people and other struggling groups-movement alliance
3) Strengthening the community to global alliance to fight for community control over forests resources and community governance
4) Developing appropriate and effective strategies to fight against the MDBs/IFIs and the governments

The objective of this project is to provide financial support to partially cover NFFPFWs expenses in organizing their second national conference taking place in Ranchi, Jharkhand between Oct.31-Nov.3 2006.
