Man has made many contributions to environment. These are earlier results
of our scientific and development strategies. In this section, we discuss
about dams, environmental health issues, habitat, people and environment,
parks, pollution and traffic issues and more.
Noise may be defined as unwanted sound or sounds that create a negative
effect on human beings. Following are the adverse psychological and
physiological effects noise has on human beings:

HABITAT: Impact of poor environment results into many factors in habitat such as slums, garbage collection, road congestions and many such factors. However, with little effort better habitats could be created by training, developing values and mindsets on the one hand and legislations on the other.

Education and Formal Education Needs; Strategies at National, Regional and International Levels.
As discusses earlier the key Concepts of Environmental Management;
Philosophical, Ethical and Technical Principles of Ethical Management;
Characteristics of Environmental Management; Some Environment Management
Approaches; Standard Setting; Economic Policies; Environmental Organization;
Environmental Indicators; Information Exchange and Surveillance; Environmental
Baseline, Reconnaissance and Impact and Studies; Environmental Education;
Determinants of Priorities in the Framework of Environmental Management;
Management of Environmental Education. Budgeting; Environmental Management
Education and Environmental Management and International Security; Emerging
Perceptions; Policy Options.
POLLUTION: WHAT, WHERE WHY?
Pollution could be of many types i.e. air pollution, water pollution, noise pollution etc. Air Pollution includes Factors Responsible for Air Pollution; Types and Sources of Air Pollution; Effects of Air Pollution on our Cultural Assets and Air Pollution Control; Water Pollution emphasized on Sources of Water Pollution; Tolerance Limit for Pollutants Present in Water. Soil Pollution., Food Pollution; Adulteration, Chemical Pollutants; Adulterants; Microbial Toxins; Natural Organic Toxicants etc Noise Pollution; Units of Noise Pollution Measurement; Measurement of Noise results from uncontrolled noise, the analysis is based on Acceptable Noise Standard; Effect of Noise Pollution on Human Health; Remedies of Noise Pollution.
ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT:
there are number of sources of energy making impact on the environment. Some of the non- conventional methods of energy sources are environment friendly. These are solar, wind, hydro and tidal energy. Others like thermal power stations and nuclear energy have negative environmental impact. Therefore there is a need to discuss the following issues. Fuel; Role of Fuels in Everyday Life; Classification of Fuels; Advantages of Liquid and Gaseous Fuels Over Solid Fuels; Wood; Charcoal is a better Fuel than Wood; Carbon Cycle; Fossil Fuels; Fluidized-bed Combustion; How Fossil Fuels were formed; Sun is the Ultimate Source of Fossil Fuels; Coal; Importance of Coal; Use of Coal; Origin of Oil; Petroleum; Occurrence of Petroleum; Petroleum Gas; The Use of LPG; Advantages of LPG; Advantages of Natural Gas; Pollution caused by Burning Fossil Fuels; Pollution caused by Burning Coal; Pollution caused by Burning Petroleum Based Fuels (Oil based Fuels) like Petrol; Animal Energy; Versatile Vehicles; Hydropower; Generation of Hydro-Electricity; Advantages of Hydro-Electricity; Limitations of Water Energy; Hydro Electricity Generation in India; Nuclear Energy; Support Facilities; IAEA-CN-36/385 Vienna and Sixth Fiver Year Plan (1980-85).
Use of Solar Energy for Electricity Production; Utilization of Solar Energy in India; Utilization of Solar Energy for Various Purposes; Biomass and Biogas; Uses of Biogas; Wind Energy; Utilization of Wind Energy in India; Uses of Wind-Energy; Limitations of Wind Energy; Energy from the Sea; Wave Energy; Tidal Energy; Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC); Geothermal Energy; Nuclear Energy.
