With the development of civilization man has unwittingly endangered his own surroundings and titled the ecological balance. It is thus essential that he should learn to revive in a sustainable world in a better environment and hence should be aware of the problems that arise time and again. Issue concerning environment worry not only environmental scientists but should be of concern to every person of this threatened planet. A pressing need has been felt to educate everybody regarding the problems of the environment. An urgent need has been felt to educate everybody regarding the problems of environment and thus a wave of environmental consciousness and concern swept across the world in the sixties and seventies. Environmental studies have been included in the syllabi of school, colleges and universities all over the world. However, considering its multidisciplinary approach, much information lies scattered in various research publications, which are beyond the reach of common students. This book on Environmental Issues and Challenges consists of articles, some of which have been already published by authors. This book has been divided into twelve chapters, in a logical sequence. The articles not only deal with the contemporary environmental problems but also the possible solutions for future environmental management for the achievement of a sustainable world. This book will thus try to make people updated with the different problems of the sustainable world. The book will serve as a reference to not only undergraduate and postgraduate students of life Sciences and allied fields but also students of economics. This book is the first of its kind that challenges all possible environmental problems caused by developmental activities of human beings.
