A GLIMPSE ON ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND ECOLOGICAL BALANCE

Upen Borah

This work is an analysis of ecology of the north-east region of India from the economic view point that provides better understanding of the inter-relationship between the economic development and the ecological balance. The work has been undertaken at the time of rising awareness for environmental conservation while a series of government and non-governmental steps have also been taken up for pollution control both at regional and national level. In fact the book is the outcome of UGC (NERO) sponsored project work.

Based on empirical research findings, the entire book has been organized into six chapters with estimation of the district-wise presence of illegal migrants from the neighbor country Bangladesh. The book consists of the following chapters: (i) Introduction, (ii) Natural Resources and Environmental Conditions of Assam, (iii) Dependency of Rural people on Natural Resources, (iv) Changing Trend in Ecological Balance in Assam, (v) The Ecology and the Economic Development in Assam and (vi) Policy Prescription and Conclusion.

This volume may be essential reading for anyone interested in deeper causes of ecological degradation of the region and future trend of ecological balance. This book will also benefit the researchers, teachers, policy planners and the nature loving NGOs.
