In particular, there is the whole range of tropical, communicable diseases -- such as malaria, filariasis, dengue, guinea worm, Japanese encephalitis etc. -- that are becoming more widespread due to the creation of favourable environmental conditions for the pathogens. The majority of the breeding places of these disease-vectors are created by man in the form of stagnant ponds, burrow pits and ditches. The Planning Commission of India has identified Twelve Strategy Challenges for the Twelfth Five Year Plan (2012-2017) which refer to some core areas that require new approaches to produce the desired results. Managing the Environment and Ecology is one of these challenges with the following 5 components: (a) land, mining, and forest rights, (b) mitigation and adaptation strategy for climate change, (c) waste management and pollution abatement, (d) degradation of forests and loss of biodiversity and (e) issues of environment sustainability. This book provides an exhaustive account of environmental problems in India and the attending consequences. Policies and programmes of the Government of India to arrest environmental degradation and ensure green growth are also discussed.
Areas covered include (a) environment and development, (b) legal provisions and institutional framework for environmental protection, (c) recent policy initiatives for environmental protection, (d) land and soil degradation, (e) water resources and pollution, (f) air and noise pollution, (g) forest resources and conservation, (h) mineral exploration/exploitation and environment, (i) protection of biological diversity of India, (j) urbanisation and environment, (k) rural development and environment, (l) disaster mitigation and management and (m) global climate change and India.
