Professor, Indian Institute of Management Bangalore
This presentation will examine the prospects of environmental governance with reference to its spatial dimension. The presentation defines how, given the trend of postmodern urban growth and the complex face of rurality in India, multilevel governance systems can be attempted that seek to reconcile local action with national and global priorities. The presentation seeks to propose a workable system of environmental governance for India that integrates National Environmental Policies with local priorities and the goals embedded in Multilateral Environmental Agreements.
