The Routledge Studies in Environmental Policy series has been initiated in this regard. As part of the series based on evaluating diverse aspects of common environmental challenges and their peculiar solutions across jurisdictions like The European Union etc. This book titled Environmental Policy of India (hereinafter referred to as EPI) undertakes an evolutionary analysis of policymaking in India with a historical as well as an international perspective. The book is a result of a synthesis of Indo-European academic contributions. The twelve (12) chapters encompass several key aspects of Environmental law and policy in India (hereinafter referred to as ELPI), ranging from Centre-State to India-EU relations, forest to water policy making, climate change to smart cities initiative etc. In the first chapter, the editors of the book, namely Natalia Ciecierska-Holmes, Kirsten Jorgensen, Lana Laura Ollier and D. Raghunandan, give an outline of the structure of the book. They also put forth the aims and objectives to be achieved by this book, clearly identifying the gap in the literature for a critical analysis of EPI to further understand its evolution in response to historical national and international factors, the role played by its various stakeholders and its relevance in the international environmental discourse.
