Biodiversity Land Use Change and Human Well-Being

A Study of Aquaculture in the Indian Sunderbans

C. Chopra

This volume deals with the growth of aquaculture farming, largely driven by export demand, in the Sunderbans and its impact on the ecosystem, biodiversity, land use change, and human well-being. It raises serious questions on: social cost of erosion of biodiversity, land conversion, sustainability of aquaculture, and multi-stakeholder aimed policy responses.
