      Another limitation of per capita measures is the lack of comparability with the figures themselves. Installing gravity-flush toilets and low-flow shower heads can reduce the amount of water used by guests. These schemes endorse industry accountability and provide them credibility to the public. In a novel approach, Richardson emphasizes the effects of the islands' physical environments and devotes chapters to climate, waters, lowlands, and highlands.

      Besides, ample use of irrigation in green revolution technology without adequate drainage facilities results in soil degradation through salinity and water logging. Cement is used largely in local construction. In India, as in other developing countries, the adoption of development strategy based primarily on large-scale industrialisation, energy-intensive technologies and biochemical-based agricultural technology, ignoring indigenous development paradigm based on locally self-sufficient technologies, has led to environmental degradation. The educated women who want to learn advanced skills and have the potential to make a difference in and on their home countries are travelling abroad, and in large part are staying abroad to take full advantage of the education and the economic prospects. While their export bases are fairly limited, many islands are beginning to diversify their industries.

      Land acquisition and environment are two major challenges that the projects are facing today in India. It also established a tariff preference system favouring developing nations. For that purpose, reduction in population growth will greatly help in easing the intensification of many environmental problems. It is not in the hands of middle-class environmentalists like me.
