Community rights over natural resources, access to rights, accountability of state and non-state actors with specific focus on capital and finance. CACIM began a new project, Centre for Financial Accountability from January 2017. CFA aims to strengthen and improve accountability of public and private financial institutions who lend money to development projects, through research, and training Communities/ civil society to understand and access accountability mechanisms.

Two of our associated fellows programmes are rooted in research and action collective, extending solidarity and support, in research and action, to people and organisations asserting their rights over their natural resources and agitating against the corporatisation of these resources for destructive development in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
