Chhattisgarh is a rich State in terms of mineral wealth, with so far known 28 varieties of minerals, including diamonds. Chhattisgarh, has substantial coal deposits, which led to its 'power hub' strategy. The tin ore which is a rare metal in India is found in Chhattisgarh. The best quality iron ore deposits in the world are found in the Bailadila mines of Dantewara district in Chhattisgarh. Rich deposits of Bauxite, Limestone, Dolomite and Corundum are also found in the State.

This report is based on the data collected through the 62nd round of NSS. It gives quantitative information on various characteristics pertaining to employment and unemployment and some characteristics associated with them at the national and state levels. This report also presents some quantitative information on current attendance in educational institutions for persons in the age group 5-29 years and on vocational training received by persons in the age group 15-29 years.

Market mechanisms are increasingly being considered as a tool for allocating somewhat scarce but unpriced rights and resources, such as air and water. Tradable permits have emerged as the most cost--effective measure leading to the emergence of both nationwide (SO2) and supranational (CO2) emission permits markets. By means of the dynamic optimization of companies which are covered by such environmental regulations, it develop an endogenous model for the emission permit spot price dynamics that account also for the presence of asymmetric information.

Common to many proposals addressing climate change is a cap on carbon emissions or carbon content of fuels. A cap will generate a market value for carbon. A key issue is who will receive this value.

Agriculture is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases. Greenpeace's new report Cool Farming details the destructive practices resulting from industrial agriculture and presents workable solutions to help reduce its contribution to climate change. These practical changes will benefit the environment as well as farmers and consumers throughout the world. This report details for the first time all direct and indirect contribution agriculture has on climate change.

Railways and highways are a major source of wildlife mortality throughout the world. Railways also cause direct loss of habitat, degradation of habitat quality, habitat fragmentation, population fragmentation/ isolation and reduce access to vital habitats. In India also, a large number of wild species are being killed annually due to railways and highways.

This paper reviews the estimation methods developed and used in India for low-flow, long-term mean flow and flood characteristics. The review is intended to provide a quick reference guide for such methods used for hydrological prediction in ungauged basins. As such it lists identified estimation formulae for various parts of India with necessary parameters. The paper also effectively gives a quick assessment of the status of hydrological predictions at ungauged sites in India. Few studies focusing on low-flow estimation at ungauged sites have been identified.

Urban forests are a vital component of the urban ecosystems and are gaining importance as the quality of this ecosystem is deteriorating. The main problem with urban greening today, is that very little information is available to planners and
