South Asian Dialogues on Ecological Democracy (SADED)

South Asian Dialogues on Ecological Democracy (SADED) verkosto pyrkii syventämään ymmärrystä ekologisesta demokratiasta ja sen globaalista kontekstista sekä tuomaan käsitettä näkyvämmin esiin kansalaisyhteiskunnan ja poliittisten elinten parissa käytävässä julkisessa keskustelussa. Toiminnan painopiste on Intiassa, mutta toiminnalla on myös vahvat laajemmat eteläaasialaiset ja globaalit ulottuvuutensa.
