Asian ecomic development and environmental consequences are t only crucial for the wellbeing of the people, but are of great relevance for the global ecomy. The ongoing intense debate on carbon emission mitigating strategies for reducing the impact of environmental consequences has undermined the principle of equity and put a question mark on the sustainability of the development process of the most dynamic Asian ecomies. This volume explores fresh perspectives on the issues of wellbeing, Asian ecomic development and environmental concerns. The book is organised along six themes: issues in sustainability of Asian agriculture; ecological concerns in theory and practice; core themes in ecomic development; resource management and policy alternatives; discrimination and socio-ecomic equity in development; and peasant distress and sustainability of cotton ecomy. The articles are based on unique quantitative data and a rigorous analytical framework for examining policies for an equitable ecomic and environmental international regime.
