Introduction to Sustainable Development

About the book

This exhaustive and thorough book on environmental governance in India examines the multi-layered interaction between society and nature in the light of the role of the State, the Judiciary and Civil Society. Governance of the natural environment has, arguably, emerged as one of the most complex challenges faced by humanity. Consequently, environment has been increasingly incorporated in the agenda at all levels of governance, for both developed and developing countries. Environmental Governance in India: Issues and Challenges traces this environment–development discourse and addresses the limitations, obstacles and possibilities for equitable, just and sustainable development. A pioneering text focusing on the State as a vital factor in environmental and sustainability politics, this book not only reveals the conflicts, problems and dilemmas of urban environmentalism but also suggests a viable strategy to maintain a balance between ecology and equity.
