The Second Edition of this concise and compact text continues to highlight the need for effective environmental management, taking into account the serious damage done to the environment through environmental pollution and degradation.

The book focuses its attention on the multidimensional aspects of environmental management such as sustainable development, the RIO Conference (popularly known as the Earth Summit), environment impact assessment, environmental ethics, environmental risk communication, and waste management.

Dr. Bala Krishnamoorthy, with her rich experience in teaching and research, provides the reader a succinct, well-researched and engaging study of this fascinating subject. Besides giving an exposition on the principles, the author also presents Case Studies and short cases to highlight and illustrate the issues discussed.

WHAT’S NEW TO THIS EDITION?

Gives four new Case Studies while retaining two case studies from the earlier edition—the new case studies include the one on the Bhopal Gas Tragedy (“Bhopal Revisited”) and the other on the Mumbai Deluge of July 2005. These would be of great interest and benefit to the readers.

Primarily intended as a text for students of management, the book should also be of interest to all those who have an abiding concern about Environment in all its facets
