Environment, Globalization and Economic Development
Environmental pollution is one of the major problems faced by the world community, especially in the cities of the developing countries which have experienced unbridled growth of population, urbanization, and industrialization. The concept of sustainable development is inextricably linked with environmental protection. It is a strategy for improving the quality of human life while living within the carrying capacity of supporting ecosystem. Sustainable development entails commitment, protection, and preservation of the environment. Protection of the environment has to be a central part of any sustainable inclusive growth strategy. This aspect of development is especially important when consciousness of the dangers of environmental degradation has increased greatly. Based on research in India while focusing on international issues, this book contains papers that provide deep insights into the relationship between economic development and the environment in the context of increasing globalization of world economies.
