Current Environmental Issues

 
B.B.S. Kapoor (Editor) K K Singh (Editor) Ahmed Ali (Editor)
Synopsis Today environmental issues are on the top in the agenda at global level. There should be a perfect balance between human development on one side and the need to protect the environment on the other. We must understand the importance of protection and conservation of the environment for our future generations. The increasing concern about environmental degradation over the past decades resulted in the promulgation of many regulatory measures, institutional changes and environmentally sensitive judicial responses. This comprehensive reference book offers a versatile detailed account of characteristics, causes and effects of worldwide burning environmental issues through twenty three chapters. Each chapter of this volume is well-written by the leading experts and scholars, having long standing experience in research, in their respective fields.
