Environmental NGOs "seek a benefit for everyone, not a few. They have also managed the environment in India, until a few years ago in private hands, not a self service. However, one of the most important challenges is to prevent the privatization of large unspoiled areas, and large primary forests, and to prevent "for the sake of crisis the environment from being managed again with economicist approaches".
# Contribute to job creation
Defending the environment also generates work: "The largest sources of employment in India have to do with renewable energies, the management and restoration of forest masses and rivers, energy efficiency, etc..
# Get more strength for citizens to maintain their quality of life
The citizen achieves more if organized, and lowering your guard involves stepping back on what has been achieved in recent years. The current crisis cannot be invested better than NGOs, "who strive not to diminish the quality of life, strengthen democracy, and those who participate in them feel strong in direct action on issues of interest to them."
# Environmental issues are included on the political agenda
NGOs introduced environmental concern into political discourse and administrations. Greenpeace's expert adds that politicians know that citizens care about the environment, that they can determine a vote, and that they have limits to their actions.
