About State at a Glance

The majestic Himalaya, which breezes life into all inter-dependent components of ecological systems and environment, needs to be better understood. Particularly, availability of 'data' helps in turning simple 'opinions' into 'facts'. And then, analysis of such data-based facts assist in revealing present patterns and making future projections. Realizing this fact, through this new publication series of "ENVIS Centre on Himalayan Ecology" is an attempt to collect, collate and synthesize available data/information on different aspects in the Indian Himalayan region. Augmentation of authentic data base on physical, biological and socio-economic aspects of the Himalayan mountains has always been challenging and fascinating to academicians, researchers, planners and policy makers, implementing agencies, particularly when this region is viewed internationally as data deficient. Authentic data base is not only important for generating fundamental knowledge base but also crucial for making policies and developmental planning. "ENVIS Centre on Himalayan Ecology" of this Institute has been given a task by the MoEF&CC, Govt. of India to compile such a data base for the Indian Himalayan states. This series of publications covers temporal trends across important segments, e.g., demography, literacy, land, water, agriculture, horticulture, forest cover, protected areas, weather profiles, etc., which would help in crucial decision-making and policy planning proactively. ENVIS Centre on Himalayan Ecology will bring out such publications on other states of Indian Himalayan region in coming years. We hope that readers will find this compilation a useful reference for baseline information. Suggestions to improve this publication series are always welcome.
