The question of environmental Wealth should not be construed as a problem of rights of nature versus rights of people but at least partially as interest groups competing for Wider support over particular issues. So, the role technology to develop a society should be eco-friendly. This principle of development will continue without jeopardizing of the natural resources. This book entitled Environmental Sciences and Technology in India is modeled on an architectural design, laying the foundation first and then building the structure with distinct magnificent elevations. The present book will be useful to the students, research scholars, scientists in the field of Environmental management and ecoplanners, politicians. scientists in the field of Environmental management and ecoplanners, politicians. In short, this book is helpful for every one who is seeking a clear cut understanding of the environment.
