Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

Kalpavriksh has built a clearing house website to collate and disseminate information they collect through RTI for Environment related issues.

Kalpavriksh and several other groups have been using the Right to Information Act to gather critical information related to environment law, policy and its implementation. Through the process of their engagement with the RTI Act they have managed to get some critical and timely information related to forest and environment clearances of development projects. This when shared with partner groups has generated a lot of informed advocacy. The RTI clearinghouse will have a person who would systematize already collected information and disseminate it through the web and through post (on request). At the same time the person will collect and collate current and critical information related to the environment, forest and wildlife related issues. The clearinghouse will also advocate with the government for greater suo moto disclosure of information about environment issues.
