The efforts made at the international level by the United Nations Agencies on Environ mental destination problems and saving the earth from the natural and man-made disasters are well-known. Besides, the proclamation of the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction and appoint ing Inter-Governmental Panels on climatic change, etc., show that all are concerned with the safety of environment and earth and are seized with the attendant problems discussed herein and incorporated in AGENDA-21 as Action Programme for implementation by all concerned. At the national level agencies such as the Central and the State Pollution Control Boards and other NGOs are involved in pollution abatement programmes. Already the global warming has led to rise in atmospheric temperatures. So, the battle is already on at the national and international level to ensure clean environment and safe earth for sustained development and better and healthier quality of life. At a time when we are fighting against these problems at a global level, we are confronted at the domestic level with such calamities as the Latur earthquake, and the East Coastal cyclones, typhoons, hurricanes, blizzards causing loss of life and property resulting in untold sufferings mentioned in this book. The object of this book is to focus attention of all Governmental and Non-Governmental agencies both at the national and inter national level (including UN, World Bank, UNDP, UNCEF etc.), and at the local level (the Pollution Control Boards, Urban Plan ning Authorities, Municipal, Industries, Health, Welfare and Safety Departments), on the importance of the problems discussed in this book, which is intended for them. The book is timely and topical. Contents PART -1 CHAPTER - 1 : ENVIRONMENT AND EARTH 1. Environment Challenge 2. Environment Damage 3. Environment Dynamics 4.
