Human Rights to Environment In India
Environmental concern world over has gained momentum today. Violation of various enviro-human rights has now become a prime concern for national Governments. Right to life has to mitigate the challenges, involved in safeguarding the human right to environment. Problem arises as to the obscurity and relativity of the scope and ambit of the right to environment. In relation to first world countries the scope is different which does not fit with the conditions prevailed in less developed countries. Even within a country the meaning and scope of the right to environment is not same and similar for all people of the country. Right to environment often comes in controversy with other rights such as right to development, right to livelihood, right to housing, right to shelter.
The book mainly concentrates on emerging dimensions of the scope and ambit of the right to environment in India under international, national and regional scenario. The Book sets out the polemics of global, federal and local environmental law and management to find protection of regional problems of pollution. Under the light of ‘think globally and act locally’ and agenda 21, the book tried to solve local environmental problems by adopting community oriented environmental governance. The book has covered an important aspect of human right to environment that is the role played by the higher Judiciary in the emergence of the right.
