In the wake of globalization, it becomes vital to strengthen our vigil and ensure that growth doesn’t cost our environment so heavily as to render it uninhabitable. Therefore, environmental law covers rules, regulations, treaties, statutes, common and customary laws aimed at balancing the relationship between development and environment. We are the only law firm in Dehradun with a permanent International Environment Lawyer – Dr. Ritumra Manuvie, who has also been a faculty in the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dehradun is a commonwealth scholar and a PhD. in Environment and Climate Law. Dr. Ritumbra has submitted various papers at international platforms including U.N. conventions and summits, regarding various environmental concerns, including climate, rehabilitation because of climate change, and, innovative methods for prevention of environmental deterioration.
It has already been ruled that a right to clean and a healthy environment is a basic human right. Besides, the Constitution states that:
“it is the duty of the state to ‘protect and improve the environment and to safeguard the forests and wildlife of the country”.
The Constitution also imposes a duty on citizens:
“to protect and improve the natural environment including forests, lakes, rivers, and wildlife.”
Therefore, it is the duty of every citizen to protect and nurture the natural resources. The overexploitation of resources is closing the doors on the much-needed idea of sustainable development. Over the years, judicial activism has played a crucial role in addressing the adverse effects of human activities on the environment. Even though the right to clean and healthy environment is not explicitly mentioned as one of the fundamental rights, but, it is implicitly contained under the ambit of Article 21 i.e. Right to Life.
