Descriptiion
The world has witnessed unprecedented changes in the environmental activities during the preceding four decades. More importantly, the growth in urbanization and industrialization has presented twofold challenge to the environmental management globally. The degrading environment and mounting burden on fossil fuels are the main impediments in achieving the target of sustainable development in India. In this apparently no win situation, the alternative options are to promote conservation and to introduce new technologies as an operational part of environmental strategy through an effective legal framework for the proper management of environment related activities.
The present book concentrates on the enforcement of various environmental laws and their management in India. The subject calls for a multi-dimensional approach, borrowing from diverse disciplines such as trade, commerce, industries, sanitation, health-care, nutrition etc., besides the socio-economic and cultural conditions in the country, which are not only crucial to growth but also to the survival of human society. The detailed coverage is particularly focused on the legal perspective of environmental jurisprudence and the developing trends in this regard in India and around the world.
The multitude of environmental changes that are setting norms for the international community have been explained and elaborately discussed in the book with particular reference to the Indian environmental laws and their management. The case-law relevant to different aspects of environmental conservation and protection has been incorporated, which will not only enliven the presentation, but also provide a practical and concrete support to the general discussion. This will help readers to understand the key concepts and conceptualize and comprehend the various environmental issues in their proper perspective.
The book is the culmination of several other works of eminent authorities and writers both Indian and foreign, whose contribution to this field of knowledge has immensely helped the author in bringing out this edition. The author gratefully acknowledges the efforts and contribution of all of them.
The author feels confident that this edition will serve as a comprehensive reference book on environmental laws and management catering to the requirements of legal fraternity including law practitioners, law teachers, students, environment managers etc and will certainly be of significant benefit to all stakeholders dealing with environmental activities.
The author welcomes reader’s comments and suggestions for the next edition.
