Goa Foundation has been pursuing a change in mining paradigm for a couple of years. Rahul Basu will explain the rationale behind these efforts and will update everyone on its status. In particular, he will explain why we need a Permanent Fund and how Goa Foundation proposes it be structured.
The Goa Foundation is the most well known of Goa’s environmental action groups. Founded in 1986 by a group of Goan environmentalists each flighting his or her own individual environmental battles, the organisation today commands the respect of judiciary, government and the general public for persisting with its environment agenda for more than two decades.
