Compendium Environment Statistics India - 2016
The Compendium of Environment Statistics aims to serve as reference material for environment planners and policy makers as well as other Government and Non-Government organizations and research institutions to increase awareness and knowledge of the environmental situation of the country. The need for improvements in the field of data and statistics to monitor progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the associated need for statistical capacity building in developing countries have been highly recognized. As the country is committed to the Post 2015 Global Development Agenda, that is achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this Compendium could be an important source of information to the indicators related to some of the SDGs set. This publication provides a comprehensive picture of the environmental situation in the country and provides an important instrument for policy integration and informed decision making.
