The book 'Rural Livelihood in India: Social, Economic and Environmental Issues' is the outcome of research related to the UGC funded DRS project undertaken in the Dept of Economics, The University of Burdwan. Despite diverse poverty reduction policies adopted from time to time by the Govt. majority of rural people in India still suffer from uncertainties regarding eking out their livelihood. The recent focus, therefore, has been on the assets / processes/ activity framework concerned with not only poverty reduction but also promoting sustainable capabilities and access to assets like human capital, physical assets, social capital, financial capital and natural capital. Promotion of peoples' capabilities involves positive intervention and development across social aspects of life, economic issues as well as environmental congeniality. This is likely to enhance peoples' freedom in having diversified income opportunities in both farm and non-farm sector based on use of diverse type of natural resources. In this book we have seventeen papers covering various issues of livelihood pertaining to farm sector, non- farm sector, social sphere and use of natural resources. The readers of this book are expected to have a comprehensive grasp of diverse dimensions pertaining to livelihood perspective in general and rural livelihood issues in particular. 1.
