About the Book :

The book is very useful for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Economics, Geography, Environmental science, Bio-tech and other Natural sciences. Natural resources are one of the most important pillars of sustainable development. The need to establish a sustainable development process at the micro level in India is urgent from various considerations social, economic, political and environmental. The common property resources, which are by and large natural resources, must be protected and enriched for overall growth of the rural areas. Such effort will not only lead to optimum utilisation of resources but also generate more employment opportunities for rural people. The author strongly feels that the development of agriculture and allied sector needs a disciplinary approach. The elements involved in the whole gamut of these activities encompass the role of an agronomist, irrigation engineer, a scientist, a cooperative expert, economist and a social scientist. The strategy recommended is to set up an autonomous authority with an area of jurisdiction equal to the command area of irrigation project and make it responsible for bringing about this transformation to modern agriculture. The book presents a vivid and penetrating analysis of the various elements involved in integrated development of resources and resource systems. The subject specialist, researcher, planner and policy-maker will find this book interesting and useful.
