This book is not restricted to the regular collection of statutes found in most run-of-the-mill compilations, and is a first ever compilation of such a wide array of legislations concerning the environment and laws relating to it. Not only the Acts that directly address environmental issues, but also every aspect of the Central and State Acts, Rules, Policy Documents, International Treaties and Conventions that concern the environment has been looked into and relevant extracts given.
Under the major headings of "Conservation of Nature", "Air", "Water", "Forest", "Wild Life", "Hazardous Substances and Waste Management", "Noise", "Biological Diversity" and "Climate Change" the book aims to address every facet of the issues related to the environment. In addition to the Central and important State Acts, the book also includes important international Declarations, Conventions and Treaties on Environment issues.
For ease of reading and speedy reference, the table of contents has been listed both topic-wise as well as a separate list provided that lays down the statutes discussed in the book alphabetically. A must-have handbook on environmental issues that would prove to be of immense use to the industry, lawyers, judges, the student fraternity, teachers, environmentalists, as well as the NGOs and all those who are concerned with the environment.
