Study Materials for Engineering Environmental Studies PDF Notes

Environmental Studies and Environmental Science has high importance in the concept of sustainable development which is key to the future of mankind. The United Nations Conference based on Environment and Development which was held at Johannesburg in the year 2002 had ever since drawn the attention of a lot of people around the globe to the deteriorating condition of our environment.

Since it is very obvious and clear that today, as per the current condition of earth’s ecosystem, not one citizen can afford to behave ignorantly when it comes to environmental issues.
