Bridging the gap in land conflict reporting in India

Land Conflict Watch is a data-research project. We map and analyse ongoing land and resources conflicts in India.

We are a network of researchers spread across the country, who combine academic rigour with factual reportage to collect data that answers questions about land conflicts and their impact on the environment, industrial investments and people.

It is operated by Nut Graph LLP, an environmental data research and content production consultancy company.

Identify

1

Over 35 researchers and journalists are part of Land Conflict Watch. They use multiple sources to find land conflicts, depending on where they are based and which source is accessible.

Collect data

2

Data about each conflict are collected on various points. The numbers are taken from government records or from independent research studies.

Verify

3

An important part of this exercise is to verify the existence of each conflict and associated facts and figures using more than one source. Although most cases of conflicts are identified from media reports, they are verified by collecting additional documents.

Analyse and update

4

The data collected are periodically analysed to look for emerging patterns on land conflicts.
