Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Dec 5, 2006 - 656 pages
Preventive Environmental Management: An Indian Perspective highlights the need for incorporating PEM approaches, characterized by community action at all levels of implementation. At the company level, PEM means adopting a holistic approach that includes diagnosing processes and systems for pollution hot-spots, interventions to reduce wastes at source, improving product quality and yield, enhancing waste treatment and value addition and integrating economic and environmental concerns of the stakeholders. What the book attempts is an interpretation of the present status of India s environment with special reference to municipal and industrial operations. It also discusses the significance of appropriate tools and techniques that enable transition across the continuum of production, consumption, and environmental protection, as well as the preparedness of communities to monitor improved environmental quality. An expansive framework for resolving some prevailing dilemmas has also been proposed in this book.
