Land Conflict Watch

Land Conflict Watch

Land Conflict Watch is a research-based data journalism project that maps, collects, and analyses ongoing land conflicts in India. It not only presents a macro picture at the national level but also zooms in to give details of each conflict at the micro level.

Land Conflict Watch is a team of independent researchers and journalists, spread across India, who combine academic rigour with journalistic approach to collect data that answers questions about conflicts and their impact on the environment, industrial investments and human rights.

The project is supported by a fellowship grant from Rights and Resources Initiative. Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai has provided academic inputs.
