works with Both ENDS on

The Legal and Environmental Advisory Forum is mainly comprised of indigenous people of the Bastar District in central India - the Adivasi. LEAF has evolved through the interaction between a lawyer, a field botanist and the Adivasi in central Bastar, for well over a decade. LEAF's essential activities concern the promotion of legal literacy among the Adivasi in Bastar and linking conservation to forest laws.
