Environmental Concerns and Sustainable Development: some perspectives from India


At the dawn of this 21st century, environmental concerns have received utmost attention from all segments of human society. The extreme abuse of nature and ruthless hunt for material happiness are the reasons for post-enlightenment destruction of the environment. Many consider the issues related to environmental degradation as an ‘environmental crisis’. During the last century, humans have been exploiting nature not merely for need but also for greed. Environmentally-concerned individuals call for immediate action to stop being greedy and act positively. In India too this environmental awareness is fast spreading and the Honourable Supreme Court of India has directed the Central and state governments to introduce courses regarding environmental issues at all levels of education. This book is a compilation of research results pertaining to development, environment, and sustainable development in the form of articles.
