It is an attempt to examine the relationship between population and sustainable development .It broadly deals with the twin problems of overpopulation and underdevelopment to which most developing societies are confronted with. These problems are relative and affect other. The Papers of this book touch upon almost every aspect of these two interlinked problems. The aspects covered in this volume are the cultural sustainability and overpopulation; the environmental problems of population; interlinkages between population, natural resources, living standards and technology: demographic changes and sustainable development; proper use of vast natural and human resources; impact of overseas migration on sustainability of development; population planning sustainable development and environment; impact of developmental projects on the underserved population; reinforcement of inequality in the distribution of resources through the kind of development taking place; role of local institutions in dealing with the problems of overpopulation and underdevelopment; control of population as a key factor in achieving the sustainable development; population growth and sustainable health. These aspects discussed in the volume make the study meaningful and valuable.
