Book Details

Sustainable development and sustainability—the two interchangeable used words—are significantly attracting the world academia to analyze emerging patterns of development. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), followed by Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), have been framed by the United Nations, suggesting the world to formulate the relevant developmental policies to achieve a sustainable future. Constraints in Achieving Sustainability of India gives an in-depth discussion on major issues and challenges India is facing towards realization of the sustainable development.

Purpose of the book is to develop, contribute, and disseminate scientific knowledge pertaining to the issues related to sustainable development. The chapters are developed so that the contents can facilitate comprehension of the major constraints in achieving sustainability including but not limited to environmental, social, economic, and governance-related issues from local, regional, to national level. Resource management, climate change, agriculture, population, education, women, poverty, infrastructure, crime, corruption, governance, are the other relevant topics that have been both identified and suitably discussed. Constraints in Achieving Sustainability of India can be utilized as a guiding tool for realizing sustainability in development, especially, in the Indian context.

The book covers environmental, social and economic dimensions of sustainability in Indian context with ample case studies from local communities to highlight impact of various dimensions.
