The book specially covers critical needs for development on different fragile ecosystems such as coastal, desert, hill, ravine and other marginal ecosystems.  For each of the above areas, necessary policy options, actions, and path ahead to transform Indian agriculture for achieving Atmanirbhar Bharat have been elucidated.
