R1,928 Discovery Miles 19 280 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book presents a socio-economic and livelihood analysis of agriculturally-dependent communities of Mizoram, the eastern extension of the Himalaya, using the sustainable livelihood approach. Such an approach to poverty reduction is inevitable, particularly, in areas where livelihoods depend largely on biomass-based agriculture and livestock production. Mizoram possesses abundant natural resources - land, water and forest - but those resources are largely unused. The region suffers from chronic poverty and malnutrition, and climate change has further influenced livelihood patterns. This work studies all the aspects of natural potentials and livelihood status in Mizoram. It also discusses the major driving forces that influence livelihood patterns. Based on a detailed analysis of empirical data, several policy measures are suggested to cope with chronic poverty and malnutrition. The book is therefore highly useful for all stakeholders; students, researchers, academicians, policy makers and politicians involved in rural/community development.

SWOC analysis of tourism activities has been carried out. The book is based on the author's observation of tourism development in the Uttarakhand Himalaya. Further, large tourism data was gathered and analyzed, using a qualitative and a quantitative method, and a sustainable tourism model was developed. This book is very useful for students, research scholars, academicians, and policymakers.

Towards Sustainable Livelihoods and Ecosystems in Mountain Regions (Hardcover, 2014 ed.): Vishwambhar Prasad Sati Towards Sustainable Livelihoods and Ecosystems in Mountain Regions (Hardcover, 2014 ed.)

Sustainable livelihoods and ecosystems are far-reaching and burning issues in the wake of high growth of population, low production and per ha yield of crops and depletion of biodiversity resources. Mountainous regions of the world are facing the menace of poverty, food insecurity and malnutrition. Further, tremendous growth in population and slow pace of development have together forced most of the population to live below poverty line. Traditionally depending upon cultivating subsistence crops for food requirement, the people living in mountainous region are unable to produce sufficient food grains to run their livelihood smoothly. The Himalayas is one of the world's biodiversity hotspots and has an abundance of natural resources: land, water and forest - life sustaining factors. The geo-environmental conditions - climate and landscape further enhance the possibility of sustainable livelihoods through eco-tourism, harnessing water resources and utilizing forests and their products sustainably. Diversifying agricultural practices through cultivating cash and cereal crops and enhancing livelihood options through extensive use of timber and non-timber based forestry products can help to eradicate poverty and provide food security. This book consists of an introduction and nine chapters, covering geo-environmental setting, socio-economy and population profile, sustainable livelihoods: diversification and enhancement, livelihood analysis, development of tourism and hydroelectricity, case studies, mountain ecosystems, sustainable mountain development and also presents a conclusion.

Economic and Ecological Implications of Shifting Cultivation in Mizoram, India (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2020): Vishwambhar Prasad... Economic and Ecological Implications of Shifting Cultivation in Mizoram, India (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2020)
Vishwambhar Prasad Sati
R3,184 Discovery Miles 31 840 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book presents the first empirically tested, comprehensive study on shifting cultivation in Mizoram. Shifting cultivation is a unique and centuries-old practice carried out by the people of Mizoram in Northeast India. Today, it is a non-economic activity as it does not produce sufficient crops, and as a result, the area under shifting cultivation is decreasing. Such cultivation leads to the burning and degradation of vast areas of forestland and therefore has adverse impacts on the floral and faunal resources. This book is a valuable resource for government workers, policymakers, academics, farmers and those who are directly or indirectly associated with practical farming, or with framing and implementing policies. It is equally important to master's and Ph.D. students of geography, resource management, development, and environmental studies who are involved in research and development.

Environmental and Socio-Economic Implications of Mining (Paperback): Vishwambhar Prasad Sati Environmental and Socio-Economic Implications of Mining (Paperback)
Vishwambhar Prasad Sati
R1,740 Discovery Miles 17 400 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Environmental conservation and economic development are the two entities of the same coin. They are the two major issues of high consideration. While framing and implementing any policies and planning, these issues should be taken into consideration. This is also important at the time when environmental degeneration and disparities in economic development is high. Every development activity has a considerable impact on the economy and the environment. On the one hand, it improves socio-economic status and enhances national and per capita income, it degenerates the natural environment of the surrounding areas, on the other. Mining activities have the similar impact on the environment and socio-economy. This book examines the environmental and socio-economic implications of stone mining in Shivpuri district of Madhya Pradesh state, India. It has 10 chapters on the different issues of mining activities and its implications. This book will be useful to the academicians, administrators, policy makers, students and general public.

Diversifying and Enhancing Livelihood Options in the Himalaya (Paperback): Vishwambhar Prasad Sati Diversifying and Enhancing Livelihood Options in the Himalaya (Paperback)
Vishwambhar Prasad Sati
R1,896 Discovery Miles 18 960 Out of stock

Livelihood diversification and enhancement has long been recognised as a mechanism to promote livelihood development. It has become a prime concern of the people living in the remote and economically backward regions, worldwide. In the Himalayan regions, where livelihood largely depends on the biomass based agricultural production, rearing of animals and on the collection of non-timber forest products, diversifying and enhancing livelihood options is highly inevitable and is a need of the hours. Developing alternative livelihoods through harnessing agro-ecological conditions for diversifying agriculture - subsistence and cash crops, and enhancing other options - NTFPs, eco-tourism, and hydroelectricity will manifest a way for sustainable livelihood in the Himalayan region. This book contents an introduction and nine chapters on the above-cited issues and suggests policy measures to sustainable livelihoods.
