Environmental Issues of North East India

Zahid Husain (Author)

Environment is the most discussed topic in the world today because of two reasons. First is the environmental degradation that has threatened the survival of all life forms on the surface of the earth. Second is the environmental management, which includes successful utilization of the environmental resources and solution of the environmental problems. These points are the focus of the present book. It deals with the state of environment (particularly the geoenvironment), degradation of environment (land, water and forest), and environmental management in Northeastern part of India. Though Northeast India can boost to still having some pristine environment, but that very environment is subjected to degradation due to plundering attitude of man, and that is a point of great concern today. That is why scientists from different branches of knowledge have contributed to make this volume a multidisciplinary one where results are integrated to understand the complexities of environmental systems in a better way so that it can be managed successfully for ever. The book will be of interest for the geoenvironmentalists, social scientists, planners and technocrats.
