Resumo

Este ensaio apresenta um levantamento dos principais problemas ambientais da Índia contemporânea e
especula sobre a relação entre a esfera econômica (subdesenvolvimento) e os resultados ambientais. A
continuação da pobreza e do subdesenvolvimento no país parece ter moldado a natureza dos problemas
ambientais que a Índia enfrenta. A defecação em locais inapropriados e a queima de biomassa para
cozinhar continuam a ser as principais fontes de poluição. Por outro lado, o crescimento econômico da
Índia vem sendo impulsionado pelo setor de serviços e, portanto, a poluição industrial não aumentou
a um nível esperado por um país em desenvolvimento, que vem testemunhando um crescimento
econômico acima de 5% durante as últimas três décadas. O artigo conclui com uma visão sobre a
possível relação entre desenvolvimento humano, meio ambiente e possíveis estratégias necessárias
para o desenvolvimento sustentável.
