About this Item: Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised Edition. In today’s complex and fast evolving environment, understanding India’s economy is not just an intellectual challenge, but, with the country emerging as a major global player, also a requirement. This unique volume, the first comprehensive resource of its kind on the contemporary Indian economy, aims to address this need. Culled from the collective wisdom and experience of over 200 distinguished contributors, that include economists, business leaders, policymakers, and analysts, the Companion covers the evolution of the Indian economy from relative obscurity to an emergent global force. The more than 200 entries span the recent cover stories of India’s high growth, leadership in software and information technology, and outsourcing success, and also document the backwaters—the widespread poverty, farmer suicides, child labour, and the large and impoverished informal sector that houses a majority of India’s labour force. The revised edition, a testimonial to the dynamism that epitomizes ‘the Indian economy’, includes several new topics that have grown in significance since the first edition was planned; and several revised entries on topics that have undergone rapid transformation during the short time since the first edition was written.

Also, sustainability of natural resources, especially water and land resources, and their efficient use is one of the core programmes of Government of India?s Twelfth Five Year Plan (2012?2017) for strategic development; this objective can only be achieved if the resources are used judiciously. Although land and water resources?the focus of the present book?are vital for human survival and development, unfortunately both are under threat and are increasing strain worldwide. These resources have wide and significantly varying implications in rural and urban settlements, especially in India, where population has been continuously growing and, therefore, the demand of land and water is intensifying. This has necessitated urgent need for reviewing the availability of land and water resources and their conservation. Besides dealing with the theoretical aspects, this compendium presents case studies on natural resources as well, which reveal ground realities at micro and meso levels too. Pedagogical features like maps, diagrams, satellite imageries and latest database of the primary and secondary nature distinguish this book from other works on the subject. The book will be of immense use to postgraduate students and research scholars of geography and related disciplines such as rural?urban studies and environmental science. The thematic approach of the book provides reasonably good contents for cogitation to researchers. Policy makers, planners and academicians may also be benefitted while framing futuristic norms which may lead to sustainable development?the ultimate goal. AUDIENCE ?

About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: New. Encyclopaedia of Environment has a wide coverage and comprehensively studies the global environmental change and environmental degradation mainly caused by human interference ? air pollution and ozone depletion, greenhouse effects, climatic change, land degradation, deforestation, desertification, loss of biodiversity, surface and groundwater contamination, hazardous wastes and agricultural pollution, and several other problems related to environment that are of primary concern. It is highly likely that environmental degradation would reduce the capacity of human societies to maintain their lifestyles at existing levels since the driving forces of global economy may no longer be able to use in sustained manner the limited resources of the earth. Although the consequences of environmental degradation are sometimes not recognized but in many cases they are intentionally ignored because of the illusory higher economic gains. Realising the urgent need for arresting the trend; for developing awareness in the readers about the preservation of biodiversity and its significance for life, sustainability and equity; and for warning against the consequences of environmental exploitation as well, the present Encyclopaedia of Environment has been compiled. It not only studies the problems related to environment but also suggests suitable remedial measures. Attempts have been made to include in these well-documented Volumes all the latest major policies adopted by the United Nations Organisation and its affiliated Agencies as well as by the developed and developing countries across the world. The first four Volumes of the Encyclopaedia include papers on Environment, Glossary of Global Warming and a detailed Bibliography to enable the readers to persue the study further. The following five Volumes include International, Regional and National Conventions; Protocols; Treaties and Agreement Relating to Environment and the Indian Laws for Clean Environment, and Pollution Control. The book would be highly useful for students and researchers engaged in the study of Environment. It would also be useful to Government executives and NGOs concerned with environment and pollution problems. Since the laymen are deeply interested in clean environment, the book would be of great interest to them.VOLUME 1 1. Concept of Sustainable Development 2. What is Climate Change? 3.

About this Item: Readworthy Publications (P) Ltd., 2008. Hardcover. Condition: New. Human existence - mental as well as physical - is a product of ecology. By way of showing that our ancient culture was concerned with reflections on the intimate relationship between life and ecology, this anthology presents an in-depth analysis of Buddhist response to ecological concerns.

About this Item: PHI Learning, 2014. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Natural resource management and sustainable development has, of late, assumed great importance, especially because of ecological crisis and environmental dangers which are looming large. Today the issues related to natural resource exploitation, consequences, their conservation, preservation and management leading to sustainable development have become the major thrust areas of teaching and research. Also, sustainability of natural resources, especially water and land resources, and their efficient use is one of the core programmes of Government of India’s Twelfth Five Year Plan (2012â€"2017) for strategic development; this objective can only be achieved if the resources are used judiciously. Although land and water resourcesâ€"the focus of the present bookâ€"are vital for human survival and development, unfortunately both are under threat and are increasing strain worldwide. These resources have wide and significantly varying implications in rural and urban settlements, especially in India, where population has been continuously growing and, therefore, the demand of land and water is intensifying. This has necessitated urgent need for reviewing the availability of land and water resources and their conservation. Besides dealing with the theoretical aspects, this compendium presents case studies on natural resources as well, which reveal ground realities at micro and meso levels too. Pedagogical features like maps, diagrams, satellite imageries and latest database of the primary and secondary nature distinguish this book from other works on the subject. The book will be of immense use to postgraduate students and research scholars of geography and related disciplines such as ruralâ€"urban studies and environmental science. The thematic approach of the book provides reasonably good contents for cogitation to researchers. Policy makers, planners and academicians may also be benefitted while framing futuristic norms which may lead to sustainable developmentâ€"the ultimate goal.

About this Item: Readworthy Publications (P) Ltd., 2008. Hardcover. Condition: New. Human existence - mental as well as physical - is a product of ecology.

About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: New. Encyclopaedia of Environment has a wide coverage and comprehensively studies the global environmental change and environmental degradation mainly caused by human interference â€" air pollution and ozone depletion, greenhouse effects, climatic change, land degradation, deforestation, desertification, loss of biodiversity, surface and groundwater contamination, hazardous wastes and agricultural pollution, and several other problems related to environment that are of primary concern. It is highly likely that environmental degradation would reduce the capacity of human societies to maintain their lifestyles at existing levels since the driving forces of global economy may no longer be able to use in sustained manner the limited resources of the earth. Although the consequences of environmental degradation are sometimes not recognized but in many cases they are intentionally ignored because of the illusory higher economic gains. Realising the urgent need for arresting the trend; for developing awareness in the readers about the preservation of biodiversity and its significance for life, sustainability and equity; and for warning against the consequences of environmental exploitation as well, the present Encyclopaedia of Environment has been compiled. It not only studies the problems related to environment but also suggests suitable remedial measures. Attempts have been made to include in these well-documented Volumes all the latest major policies adopted by the United Nations Organisation and its affiliated Agencies as well as by the developed and developing countries across the world. The first four Volumes of the Encyclopaedia include papers on Environment, Glossary of Global Warming and a detailed Bibliography to enable the readers to persue the study further. The following five Volumes include International, Regional and National Conventions; Protocols; Treaties and Agreement Relating to Environment and the Indian Laws for Clean Environment, and Pollution Control. The book would be highly useful for students and researchers engaged in the study of Environment. It would also be useful to Government executives and NGOs concerned with environment and pollution problems. Since the laymen are deeply interested in clean environment, the book would be of great interest to them.VOLUME 1 1. Concept of Sustainable Development 2. What is Climate Change? 3.
