It is now well recognised across the world that wealth generated by the mining sector comes at a substantial development cost, along with environmental damages and economic exclusion of the marginalised. This has also been exhaustively documented in India. In fact, the major mining districts of India are among its poorest and most polluted. Considering the negative externalities of the mining sector, new policies and practices are being explored and implemented across the world to ensure that mineral wealth can be converted into sustainable development benefits for local communities.

CSE in collaboration with Samrakshan Trust, a local NGO working in Meghalaya, organised two workshops (Shillong and Tura) on illegal mining and rat hole mining in the state of Meghalaya.

CSE, in collaboration with Ekta Parishad, conducted a roundtable in Rourkela (Kalunga) on the MMDR (draft) Act 2010. The objective was to expose the direct stakeholders like affected people and grassroot level NGOs to the draft act and the special provision of 'profit sharing'. The meeting was attended by stakeholders from the states of Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Jharkhand. The meeting opened with a presentation from Chandra Bhushan, deputy director general, CSE on the provisions of the act and what they might imply.
