About the Book
The importance of environmental studies and the need for sustainable development is a key to future of mankind. The continuous exploitation and deterioration of the environment has been recognised worldwide and every country is making efforts in restoring the environment.
In our country, the Hon. Supreme Court had directed the University Grants Commission (UGC) to introduce a basic course on environment for all undergraduate students. Accordingly, UGC framed a six months core module syllabus to be compulsorily implemented by all Universities.
This book, while covering the module syllabus has expanded the scope by including subjects like Environmental Economics, Valuation and Management of Environment, Sustainable Resource Development, Regional and Sectorial issues – urban, agro-forestry and river basin environmental issues thus making it comprehensive and suitable for one year course of study.
