    • Basic Information about the initiative
    • Forum for Land and Livelihood Rights of Coastal Communities is a collaboration of 4 partners (Arunodhaya, C-DOT, Udavi & NAWO) for strenghtening the voice for the land and livelihood rights’ of the coastal communities and underserved urban localities. FLLRC from its genesis has been working on the land and livelihood issues of the urban and the coastal communities. The present situation of the urban fisher community is more vulnerable. The community is being dispossessed in the name of urbanization. They are relocated from the coast to which their lives have been intertwined from time immemorial. The coast and the sea are the prime livelihood option for these fisher communities. The organised strength helps them to secure better bargaining capacity and they have received compensatory housing from the government.
