Sustainable environmental management

Issues and projections



Book description

Sustainability of eco-system is becoming a major concern to global research and policy bodies world over as it represents the last step in a long evolution of the protection of environmental quality. Hence, sustainable environmental management is based on approaches that mitigates over-bearing issues of global climate change, gradual but steady heating up of the earth surface-global warming, increased soil degradation, flooding, melting of icebergs etc. Conservation of these natural resources, provision of adequate and dependable environmental-friendly policies and action will reduce poverty and associated problems. There is therefore need to develop more sustainable solutions to these demands as expressed by various contributions in this book.
