About The Book

Increasing Population, associated improvement in quality of life and constantly changing life styles result in over exploitation of Earth`s finite material and non-renewable energy resources. Release of excessive wastes through industrial and domestic activities lead to creation of dangerous pollution levels in the environment and create a stress on the carrying capacity of various regions. It has therefore become essential to strike a balance between the economic growth and Environmental quality through public policy, Management and understanding of various complex and interrelated concepts and issues.
A generalized compilation of such management issues along with the basic concepts of environment, ecology, ecosystems and biosphere, natural resource and their management are included in the book. Initial section of the book deal with a generalized compilation of basic concept of environment, ecology, ecosystems, biosphere and natural resources management. This is followed of specific pollutants and their information, specific objectives and components of environmental Management have been further discussion. The concept of sustainable development and information on India's environmental policies and Environmental Management studies of various universities in India and other developing countries will find the interdisciplinary approach, presented in this book, more useful for further research planning and developmental activities in the field of environmental management.
