India has a vast extent of land, forest and rich variety of biodiversity. Its wide agro-climatic regions have supported expansion of human and animal populations through ages. However, economic development in India has been accompanied by certain amount of avoidable environmental damage for want of long term vision and planning. However, both proximate and ultimate causes influenced the environment in the post-liberalization period too. In view of this, the present edited volume comprises 12 research papers broadly highlighting the interrelated aspects of population, development and environment, which helps to policy implications at different levels in order to mitigate the environmental pollution for the sustainable development. The first part of the book ‘Population, Poverty and Environment’ examines the land use change, migration and industrialization impact on environment. The next part of the book ‘Development and Environment’ tries to analyze the development impact on environment. The last part of the book deals with the nexus between urban growth and its negative impact on environment which includes land use change and its socio-economic vulnerability on environment.
