Several Adivasi communities or indigenous people are spread over the Eastern Ghats across the southern and eastern region of the Indian sub-continent. It is the most tragical ironies of development that these adivasi communities are at their vulnerable worst at the end of this millenium. Our experience as a social action group, having worked with the tribal/adivasi people for over a decade has been a struggle for a right to human life with dignity, a struggle to fight the severest of odds in the face of "sustainable development" theories of the state.  20k v. 1 Jul 17, 2010, 2:54 AM Samata India

A variety of forest myths and a jungle of forest laws have over the years served to deny social justice to the forest-dwelling tribals. Two commissions, one on tribal matters and the other on forests, are presently reviewing these subjects and this is a golden opportunity for both to meet and resolve all the land issues relating to tribals and forests and the issue of tribal access to their own forest resources which alone can bring peace and prosperity in the tribal areas.  41k v. 1 Dec 3, 2010, 3:20 AM Samata India

Conflict over control, management and decision-making over resources is the primary consequence of the increasing changes in politico-economic trends and policies. These conflict situations, having led to an alarming degradation of natural resources has given rise to new thoughts on the need to take people into confidence and involve them in the process of development. One such effort made by the government is the Joint Forest Management programme (JFM) initiated by the Andhra Pradesh Forest Department.  422k v. 2 Jul 17, 2010, 2:19 AM Samata India

The Scheduled Areas of India are home to a bulk of the mineral resources and forests and as also tribals. The emphasis of the various five-year plans on industrial development and development of these resource based (mining) industries has taken its toll on the tribals who are residing in the scheduled areas. Of the total persons displaced due to various industrial projects almost forty percent have been tribals. Exact estimates of the tribals displaced are difficult to come by, however the mid term appraisal report of the Ninth Five Year Plan puts the figure at 2 crores.  491k v. 1 Jul 17, 2010, 2:57 AM Samata India

The Fifth Schedule of the Indian Constitution that provides protection to the Adivasi people living in the Scheduled Areas, is under imminent threat of being amended to effect transfer of tribal lands to non-tribals and corporates. This move has serious implications to the 80 million tribal population of the country, their very survival and culture.  16k v. 1 Jul 17, 2010, 2:51 AM Samata India
