ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT AND FEDERALISM: THE INDIAN EXPERIENCE

 

S. Bhatt & Akhtar Majeed (Edited)

book_environment.jpg (9717 bytes)
Issues concerning environment can not remain local because the effects of environmental mis-management cross-state and national boundaries. Pollution cannot remain the concern of the place where it originates because it goes on to affect a much bigger geographical area. Environmental activists insist that natural endowments can be better managed and effectively regulated as the local level. But they also apprehend a dilution of regulatory enforcement at the local level.

In times of global concerns about environmental issues a system of cooperative federalism can offer a framework where responsibilities are shared. Instead of just imposing national or international mandates on the lower tiers of governance, environmental protection would be better managed if the latter are given more share in regulation and enforcement. Environment is an area where federal devolution can provide the solution for welfare governance.
