Sustainability Conflicts in Coastal India: Hazards, Changing Climate and Development Discourses in the Sundarbans

Sustainability Conflicts in Coastal India: Hazards, Changing Climate and Development Discourses in the Sundarbans By Aditya Ghosh
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 255 Pages | ISBN : 3319638912 | 12.88 MB

This multidisciplinary work analyses challenges to sustainable development amidst rapidly changing climate in the world’s largest delta – the Sundarbans. Empirical evidence unpacks grounded vulnerabilities and reveals their temporal socio-economic impacts. A novel concept of ‘everyday disasters’ is proposed – supported by data and photographic evidence – that contests institutional disaster definition. Then it uncovers how the geopolitics of ecological governance and its hegemonic discourse dominate local policies, which in turn fail to address local socio-ecological concerns, adaptation needs and development aspirations.
