Introduction

Conservation and protection of the environment assumes critical importance in current times. Degradation and exploitation of natural resources, climate change, and certain development policies are threatening livelihoods of natural resource dependent communities, particularly so in the Indian context. There is a need to understand the functioning of diverse ecosystems, the threats to their sustainability, and its impact on the livelihoods. Sustainable Development planning needs to strengthen natural resources base, mitigate impacts and implement environmentally sensitive management.
