The KSSP is an NGO active since 1962 in the area of environmental protection and rational use of natural resources.
KSSP is a grassroots organization with over 50,000 members of 1300 units. It won the Indira Gandhi Paryavaran Puraskar, the highest environmental award in India, in 1988. Its campaign was primarily responsible for saving the silent valley tropical evergreen forests from being destroyed by a hydro electric project.
KSSP is currently engaged in a project in alternative land use practices with the participation of the people in selected hill slope areas in Kerala.
