Several Talks by Leo Saldanha & Bhargavi Rao of Environmental Support Group

The Environmental Support Group (ESG) is amongst the foremost proponents in India for the reform of environmental decision making processes, urging that these processes be made more participatory and environmentally and socially just. ESG-initiated or supported campaigns have been largely successful despite the nature of the issues being highly controversial and politically sensitive with national-level implications. In acknowledgment of its influencing role, ESG's services have been sought by a variety of regional, national and international agencies.
