EnviStats-India 2020: Vol.I - environment statistics

The scope of environment statistics covers biophysical aspects of the environment and those aspects of the socio-economic system that directly influence and interact with the environment, and consequently, it is not easy to draw a clear line dividing the environment, social and economic statistics. Apart from social and economic statistics that describe processes or activities with a direct impact on, or direct interaction with, the environment, other relevant social and economic statistics are also required to place environmental issues in context and facilitate the integrated analysis of environmental, social and economic processes. ‘EnviStats-India; Vol. I – Environment Statistics’ have been categorised into six chapters, each corresponding to one of the components of FDES 2013. The tables relating to the topics under the component have been put together, for the ease of comprehension and use. This publication is the third in the series.
