Author Info

  • Prof. Purusottam Nayak

    (North-Eastern Hill University)


Inspired by the worldwide debate on the issue, the present paper is a humble attempt to test the nexus between poverty and environmental degradation in rural India based on secondary sources of data. Though the study does not reveal any definite pattern of linkage in the context of rural India it examines the probable causes of failure in the link, highlights the status of poverty and environmental degradation across States and over time and concludes by highlighting the urgent need for undertaking micro level studies in the North Eastern States based on primary survey for policy intervention.
