  1. 1. Environment Management
  2. 2. Environment  The word ‘environment’ comes from the French word “environmer” which means to encircle or surround. It refers to the social or cultural conditions.  Environment as an area of study as is a conglomerate of all basic and applied sciences, engineering, socioeconomic aspects, management and law.
  3. 3. Environmental Resources  Raw material, energy, water, air, land and living resources.  Most of the environmental resources are in the biosphere of the earth-a 6-km thick layer on the surface of the earth-which includes the atmosphere.  The economic view is that the natural environment is an asset or capital commodity that directly and indirectly provides economic benefits.
  4. 4. Environmental Management  It is the optimal utilization of the finite resources between different possible uses. Environmental criteria and economic considerations demand that such an allocation be efficient.  The available resources should be protected from degradation, and scarce and diminishing resources should be conserved.
  5. 5. Environmental Resources, Cont.  Societies are adopting natural resource management methods, land-use planning, pollution control and environment conservation methods.  Growing world population and environmental exploitation impose an ever-increasing strains on natural resources.  Total world resources are never fully known.
  6. 6. Environmental Resources, Cont.  Resources provided by environment are:  TANGIBLE  INTANGIBLE  AESTHETIC  RENEWABLE  NON-RENEWABLE
  7. 7. Stockholm Conference  On June 16, 1972, the United Nations conference on Human Environment, adopted a declaration consisting of a preamble and 26 principles.  By the preamble, the conference proclaimed that the defense and improvement of the human environment-both natural and man made-has become an imperative goal for mankind.
  8. 8. Earth Summit-RIO in 1992  The UN have given an impetus to these Stockholm principles by providing the Agenda 21 through the Earth Summit at RIO in 1992.  These principles serve as a source of inspiration to evolve action areas by the national government, depending upon their capacity.
  9. 9. Principle 1 Human beings are at the centre of concerns for sustainable development. They are entitled to a healthy and productive life in harmony with nature. Principle 2 States have, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the principles of International law, the sovereign right to exploit their own resources pursuant to their own environmental and developmental policies, and the responsibility to ensure that activities within their jurisdiction or control do not damage to the environment of other States or of areas beyond the limits of national jurisdiction.
  10. 10. Principle 3 The right to development must be fulfilled so as to equitably meet developmental and environmental needs of present and future generations. Principle 4 In order to achieve sustainable development, environmental protection shall constitute an integral part of the development process and cannot be considered in isolation from it.
  11. 11. Principle 5  All states and all people shall cooperate in the essential task of eradicating poverty as an indispensable requirement for sustainable development, in order to decrease the disparities in standards of living and meet the needs of the majority of the people of the world.
