This volume deals with the growth of aquaculture farming, largely driven by export demand, in the Sundarbans and its impact on the ecosystem, biodiversity, land use change, and human well-being. It raises questions on social cost of erosion of biodiversity, land conversion, sustainability of aquaculture and multi-stakeholder aimed policy responses.
A detailed discussion on compliance costs, economic benefits as against social costs of environmental pollution and degradation enriches the debate. The volume examines the drivers of shrimp export and the issues faced by exporting concerns; the stakeholders in the value chain; the extent of biodiversity loss off the Sundarbans coast and the land use change; impact on well-being of the different categories of stakeholders; and finally, possible policy recommendations for sustainable aquaculture in the region.
