The Goa Foundation is a well – known environmental action group in Goa, founded in 1986, which has initiated key public interest litigation in the Bombay High Court and the Supreme Court, particularly with regard to the effects of mining on Goa’s natural environment. In 2014, the Supreme Court passed a landmark judgment (Goa Foundation v Union of India)¬†setting up a permanent fund which would receive a percentage of proceeds from mining activities in the interest of inter-generational equity.

Vidhi provided pro bono research assistance to the Goa Foundation in March 2015 on some legal issues related to the operationalisation of this judgment.
