 DESCRIPTION
spacer

Urban Issues and Environmental Challenges takes a hard look at a wide spectrum of urban and environment issues, both general and specific. Under the gamut of urban issues it examines the fallout of urbanization, problems of municipal governance, human resource development, legislation, resource mobilization, urban services, urban poor and citizen participation. In the section on environment it analyses the issues of global warming, climate change and the Copenhagen accord, disaster management and non-conventional energy.

Some of the contents of the book were published as articles in national journals, as papers presented at national and international seminars and conferences, or as part of project assignments undertaken in India and abroad by the authors individually. Although written over the span of last few years, they have urgent relevance even today, since they depict the growing management and environmental problems confronting the cities and the institutions governing them.
