Since the early 1970’s, the world has become increasingly sensitised to environmental issues which cut across many disciplines and occur at different spatial scales. The unprecedented population growth and advanced technology both have led to man’s impact on environment becoming appreciable, so that, there is mounting pressure on both environment and resources. Concerns for environment have been echoed at various international conferences and also have been discussed at inter-governmental levels. In India concern for environment had started in late 1970. To protect environment various constitutional amendments were made in the first place. Environmental legislations were enacted from time to time to protect the environment followed by environmental policies.
Environment, legislations and policy.
