Indian perspective of sustainable development


Author(s): Dr. Veena Krishan Singh

Abstract: Sustainable development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. A development path that is sustainable in a physical sense could theoretically be pursued even in a rigid social and political setting. But physical sustainability cannot be secured unless development policies pay attention to such considerations as changes in access to resources and in the distribution of costs and benefits. Thus the goals of economic and social development must be defined in terms of sustainability in all countries developed or developing, market oriented or centrally planned. Interpretations will vary, but must share certain general features and must flow from a consensus on the basic concept of sustainable development and on a broad strategic frame work for achieving it. India is the seventh largest country in the world and Asia's second largest nation with an area of 3.29 million square kilometers. The country is set apart from the rest of Asia by the Himalayas to the north, and is flanked by the Bay of Bengal to the east, the Arabian Sea to the west, and the Indian Ocean of the South. India is characterized by variable terrain, starting from the Himalayas to flat rolling plains along the Ganges deserts in the West and an unplaned plain (the Deccan plateau) in the country's south. India as numerous perenial and seasonal rivers, a rich variety of soils and a great diversity of natural ecosystems. There are also diverse climate zones varying from tropical monsoon in the south to temperate in the north.
