Regional Media Briefing Workshop The Fight Over a Right

The event is now completed
How forest communities are using the Community Forest Resource Rights (CFRR) provision in the FRA to reclaim their ownership rights 
September 22-23, 2022, Bhubaneswar, Odisha

Since 2012, there has been a significant rise in the number of forest communities and villages demanding community forest resource rights (CFRR). As more forest communities demand the right to take charge of their forests, state governments and the forest bureaucracy remain reluctant to let go. The two-day Regional Media Briefing Workshop in Bhubaneswar on this subject was attended by over 45 journalists from across the country. 

The workshop was jointly organised by the CSE Media Resource Centre and Vasundhara, and was based on a recent cover story by Down To Earth.
