Environmental and Ecological Sustainability:

Engaging the Stakeholders

4-5 October 2018

Venue: Indira Gandhi National Open University, New Delhi

Organised by:-

School of Interdisciplinary and Trans-disciplinary Studies

Indira Gandhi National Open University, New Delhi

Sustainable Human development is always in natural synergy with ecology and environment.

Imbalances in the nature have always brought catastrophic consequences for human survival

and hence have derailed the human development. Defining Sustainable development is

complex. However, in general, there is a common agreement that sustainable development is

the result of synergetic interaction between three systems: ecological, economic, and social.

The enormous complexity of interaction between them often poses more challenge. For

example, the increased human development and economic progress often challenge the

ecosystem and are instrumental in bringing catastrophic consequences. The growing pressure of

population, energy use, and exploitation of natural resources obviously put tremendous pressure

on ecology and environment. Many of the recent catastrophes are the result of over-exploitation

of ecosystem and unplanned growth.

These global catastrophes impel us to think proactively about response mechanism to minimise

the loss of human lives and material resources in the wake of such natural calamities. Indian

Ocean Earthquake (2004), Hurricane Katrina (2005), Pakistan Earthquake (2005), Cyclone

Nargis (2008), Haiti Earthquake (2010), Tōhoku Earthquake, Tsunami (2011) and Hurricane

Irma (2017) are some of the known examples of environmental and ecological disturbances. It

is alarming that the frequency of these disasters is increasing.
