Natural Resource Management

B W Pandey (Editor)
Synopsis Natural resource management presents outstanding, current coverage of major issues and problems in resource conservation and management. Effective conservation depends primarily on a basic human respect for natural resources. The real substance of conservation lies not in the physical projects of government, but in the mental processes of citizens. Natural resources are the basis of all economic and social activities. The euphoria for rapid economic development has created enormous pressure on natural resources. Degradation of natural resources have been caused by a variety of social, economic, institutional and technological factors. Rapidly growing population, urbanisation and industrial activities have all resulted in considerable deterioration in the quality and quantity of natural resources. This book is an outcome of the valuable contributions made by eminent scientists, research scholars and teachers who have been striving to develop alternative strategies and solutions for natural resource management. This book would be of immense use to the policy makers, environmentalists, academicians, research scholars and people in general concerned about the environment and natural resource management.
