This book presents a national overview of the startling array of challenges faced by India - including pollution and waste generation. The book demonstrates how all natural resources, from land and forests to water and biodiversity, are under immense pressure and in turn, compounded poverty. Rapid industrial, agricultural and urban development has led to alarming and ever-growing levels of pollution. The solution lies in good governance and the application of appropriate technological and management solutions as the nation inches towards higher rates of economic growth and social development.
