The Andaman Trunk Road - Life Line or Death Spell ?

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)

Abstract

A road that stretches north-south across the main Andaman Islands in the Indian Ocean threatens the life of the Jarawa tribe to whom the islands have been home and refuge for thousands if not tens of thousands of years. The road has changed the life of the Jarawas irreversibly. Vulnerable to diseases brought in by the road traffic and settlers, their physical existence is in jeopardy. The Andaman Trunk Road was built as a contribution to development and civilization. The question is, who are the stakeholders in the ATR, what are the costs, what are the benefits and how does the road compare to the alternative concept of waterways. - (IfL)
