Ecology and Human Well-Being

Pushpam Kumar (Editor) B. Sudhakara Reddy (Editor)
Synopsis The contribution of ecology for human well-being remains blurred in decision-making frameworks, although its impact on societal well-being is profound.  This volume presents some of the latest developments in research in interdisciplinary traditions of ecological economics in India.  It outlines strategies and politics that can be adopted to ensure ecological sustainability.  Containing both methodological and empirical essays, the book covers a number of critical issues including: Ecological and social resilience, Ecosystem services and quality of life, Policy reform for sustainable development, Governance and ecosystems, Valuing changes in the ecosystem, Communities and collective action.  Overall, the contributors maintain that it is essential to rethink the criteria used in the design of development processes in order to avoid committing ecological blunders.  The volume focuses on the need for bridging the knowledge systems of ecology and economics and, as such, will be of interest to researchers, environmentalists, economists and development practitioners.
