Waste Management and Environmental Health

B. Tabassum (Author) ENV Books Series

The apathy of a common man towards Mother Earth and environment in particular is mainly responsible for the poor state aesthetics and health caused due to environmental degradation. As they say “Charity begins at home” is very true here. If we cannot handle a small quantity of waste materials generated in our house and depend on Local Body to take care of it, them dumping yards are bound to be there and environment is going to get degraded further and further.

The waste disposal issues have been given a small attention by the common man, Government and policymakers. This “National Conference on Waste Disposal and its Effect on Biodiversity” has been organized to publicize this burning issue of waste disposal among researchers, academicians and policymakers, so that necessary steps could be taken to get rid of these heaps of wastes.
