Handbook of Population and Development in India
- Kumar, A. K, Shiv(UNICEF India)Panda, Pradeep(Micro Insurance Academy, New Delhi)Ved, Rajani R.(National Health Systems Resource Centre, New Delhi)
The Indian demographic scenario is characterized by large regional variations in population trends, uneven human development, adverse sex ratios, growing urbanization, and internal rural-to-urban migration. This handbook provides a comprehensive understanding of the population-development linkages, through an engagement with human development, human rights, and gender justice perspectives. The linkages between population size, birth rates, economic well-being, environmental sustainability, and economic growth are complex. Using the latest Census and National Family Health Survey data, this volume analyses a wide range of topical issues-food security, fertility, opportunities for the youth and the girl child, media and public health, and women's empowerment. Identifying past trends and future challenges, the volume calls for a more humane approach to population stabilization and endorses the popular tenet-'take care of people and the population will take care of itself'.
