People’s perceptions on the functioning of environmental enforcement machinery in Andhra Pradesh
Though based on sound scientific principles and globally recognized norms, India’s en¬vironmental laws and policy are not effectively implemented. The visible deterioration of city and receptor environmental quality is in stark denial of the avowed state policy precepts such as sustain-ability and natural resources conservation. Development project clearance methods, environmental management and regulatory practice do not converge with the corresponding capacity and structure of environmental regulation, information and markets at the impact levels. Policy directs Develop¬ment within environmental carrying capacities, essentially through pollution source-based impact assessments and management procedures. This tends to discourage cleaning up already degraded receptors, shifting polluting development towards cleaner areas. A participative, market oriented, local area-based approach could promote more holistic development extending incentives for pollut¬ers and victims alike in cleaning up to ensure incomes from both environmental and conventional economic flows. In this paper an attempt is made to present the views of sample respondents on various aspects of environmental laws and environmental enforcement machinery.
