Environmental Health, Education and Public Understanding (Volume 2)

 
S.N. Mishra (Editor) R. Swarup (Editor) V.P. Jauhari (Editor)
Synopsis Environmental polices are no longer focusing simply on the control of pollution and the abatement of nuisances but indeed on more positive actions directed at the improvement of the quality of life that depends on the health and viability of the natural and man-made environments. Public participation in environmental affairs increased during the last two decades. Some of this interest was spurred by the efforts of the media to cover the field. But media coverage was uneven; because it responded to the public consciousness of environmental problems and to accidents and special events. Environmental awareness increased most in wealthier and better educated populations, and was stimulated by books and films as well as newspapers, magazines and electronic media. In areas where surveys were conducted they seemed to show that people’s attitude towards environmental issues while remaining concerned about pollution they become more alert to the scarcity of natural resources, the necessity for conservation and the relation between environment and development this book is analyzing all about the same.
