Environmental Awareness

Radhey Shyam [3] | Pramod Gupta

Abstract: This paper analyzes the growing need of technology and its effect on the environment. Economic growth should be achieved in such a way that it should not harm environment in the first place and if we cannot avoid, it affects the environment as less as possible. Currently the economic growth is at odds with environment which is a cause of concern for the environmentalists or the scientific community. Just like other government departments, MoEF designs and implements policies which contribute to economic performance, productivity growth and economic prosperity of our country. Economic growth and environmental balance must be kept in mind while deciding any project to take in hand. It is the natural environment which is central to economic growth and activity, providing the resources we need to manufacture goods and services, and absorbs and processes unwanted by-products in the form of waste and pollution. Environmental assets are responsible in contributing to managing risks to economic and social activity, also help to regulate flood risks and the local climate (both air quality and temperature), and maintain the supply of clean water and other resources. The India and the global economy is facing environmental challenges, from averting dangerous climate change to halting biodiversity loss and protecting our ecosystems. There has been debate over whether it is possible to achieve economic growth while tackling these challenges. This paper examines the link between economic growth and the environment, and the role of environmental policy in managing the provision and use of natural assets.
