Social Need Education and Human Awareness (SNEHA) was established in 1984 and is based in Nagapattinam, India. It works with issues of environmental justice, gender equity and child rights with the coastal communities. It is a core committee member in various national forums such as the National Fishworkers Forum (NFF), National Coastal Protection Campaign (NCPC). SNEHA also has a history of working with regional networks and is a core committee member in the SDG WatchTN India, a new initiative of Civil Society Organisations.

Our collaboration: The main output of SNEHA’s proposed project is to conduct a people’s tribunal of coastal communities and small-scale fisheries in South and South East Asia – a regional “Court of the Coasts”. At the Tribunal, case studies documenting fishing communities’ experiences with ‘Blue Growth’ will be presented.
