National Seminar on Debating Sustainability: Discourses on Environment and Development is an attempt to map this register as it figures in the contemporary Indian social science landscapes and to project upon their trajectories. It attempts to examine the multiple discourses around this theme today, such as the impact of environmental degradation on the poor, the disproportionate effects of climate change on developing nations and the role of industrialized countries in the battle against global warming. These debates challenge the view that development and environmental protection are fundamentally opposed to each other, and enable the formation of a more inclusive idea of sustainability and development.
