Regulatory and Community Requirements of Industrial Project Clearance
Currently there are over 10 billion dollars worth of proposed industrial projects around the world held up in the quagmire of legality, regulatory bindings, community demands, and politics. Environmental and community concerns are important considerations when it comes to project clearance.
There is one area which has difficulty regulations and where the scope of maneuverability is very little - forest clearance. While the major delays in forest clearance are procedural and administrative, it is also a process that demands clarity among the proponents.
All these add up to why there is a need to understand regulatory and community requirements of environmental clearance. This book is deals with this subject, and the on concerns mentioned above.
