The volume is the outcome of a symposium held at the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC) in February 2001. A number of senior scholars participated from all over India. Professor Ramprasad Sengupta and Professor Anup K. Sinha organized the symposium, under the aegis of C-DEP (Centre for Development and Environment Policy) in IIMC. (Professor Ramprasad Sengupta has since then been at JNU in New Delhi.) Sengupta and Sinha are both professors of economics, and are the editors of the proposed volume. The symposium of Population, Life Support and Human Development was set in the backdrop of the 2001 Census. We had adopted an interdisciplinary approach in addressing questions about population trends, and whether we have sufficient land for food, adequate water, and the ability to provide education and health for all, along with the increased need for urban space. In the twenty-first century education and health are considered as important life support systems as the ability to access adequate food, clean air and water. The challenge of human development can be met by focusing on basic and substantive issues of technology as well as social institutions and policies that create the capability, priorities and the distribution patterns for new and existing resources. This concern lies at the core of this volume that seeks to understand the process of sustainable human development, and the environmental and technological problems that constrain such improvements.the Indian dynamics Ramprasad Sengupta, Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta. ... 240 Meghalaya Plateau 85 Mekong delta 170 Mexico 267 Mexico City policy 65 micro-filming 142 middle class 26, 201, 203 Middle ...
