Under-mining health? Health, wealth and forests in a mining area of Orissa, India.
Start Date: 2/5/2013
End Date: 2/5/2013

Event Description:
In this month's presentation, Dr. Erin Sills, associate professor of forestry and environmental resources, examines the impacts of iron ore mining in Keonjhar district in the eastern Indian state of Orissa.

Expansion of mining in eastern India has been controversial, largely because of impacts on previously isolated environments and peoples. Environmental health problems draw particular concern, because they affect people who live in mineral-rich areas but do not necessarily derive benefits from mining. This parallels worldwide concerns about “the social and spatial distribution of both mining’s benefits and its socioeconomic and environmental costs” (Bridge 2004) and well-publicized conflicts between mining companies and local communities (Kemp, Owen, Gotzmann, & Bond 2010).
