PED
 
(Population,
 
Environment
 
and
 
Development):
 
The
 
SAARC
 
Countries
 
Scenario
 
ABSTRACT
 
South
 
Asia
 
as
 
a
 
region
 
has
 
its
 
own
 
geographical,
 
political
 
and
 
economic
 
importance
 
in
 
the
 
world.
 
Therefore,
 
it
 
is
 
very
 
important
 
to
 
analyze
 
development
 
scenario
 
of 
 
South
 
Asian
 
nations,
 
especially
 
when
 
it
 
has
 
been
 
quoted
 
as
 
the
 
most
 
dynamic
 
and
 
potential
 
region
 
of 
 
21st
 
century.
 
The
 
Challenge
 
for
 
South
 
Asian
 
region
 
today
 
is
 
to
 
travel
 
the
 
vast
 
distance
 
between
 
its
 
performance
 
and
 
its
 
promise.
 
On
 
the
 
one
 
hand,
 
it
 
has
 
emerged
 
as
 
the
 
poorest,
 
the
 
most
 
illiterate,
 
the
 
most
 
malnourished
 
and
 
least
 
gender
sensitive
 
region
 
in
 
the
 
world.
 
On
 
the
 
other
 
hand
 
it
 
has
 
all
 
potential
 
to
 
become
 
the
 
most
 
dynamic
 
region
 
in
 
the
 
21st
 
century
 
if 
 
there
 
is
 
a
 
massive
 
investment
 
in
 
human
 
development
 
(Report
 
of 
 
Human
 
Development
 
in
 
South
 
Asia,
 
1998).
 
Moreover
 
the
 
environment
 
of 
 
these
 
nations
 
is
 
also
 
deteriorating.
 
Due
 
to
 
great
 
focus
 
on
 
economic
 
development,
 
environment
 
has
 
always
 
remained
 
a
 
secondary
 
thing
 
for
 
these
 
nations.
 
The
 
paper
 
analyses
 
the
 
pattern
 
and
 
level
 
of 
 
development
 
in
 
South
 
Asia
 
(India,
 
Bangladesh.
 
Bhutan,
 
Nepal,
 
Pakistan
 
and
 
Sri
 
Lanka).
 
It
 
also
 
focuses
 
upon
 
the
 
relationship
 
between
 
population,
 
development
 
and
 
environment
 
in
 
South
 
Asia.
 
The
 
data
 
is
 
collected
 
from
 
various
 
published
 
sources
 
and
 
then
 
analyzed
 
using
 
correlation
 
technique.
 
Taking
 
into
 
consideration
 
various
 
aspects
 
of 
 
development
 
an
 
index
 
has
 
been
 
formulated
 
for
 
the
 
level
 
of 
 
development
 
in
 
these
 
nations.
 
It
 
is
 
found
 
that
 
Sri
 
Lanka
 
is
 
the
 
most
 
developed
 
country
 
followed
 
by
 
India,
 
Pakistan,
 
Bangladesh,
 
Bhutan
 
and
 
Nepal
 
respectively.
 
Sri
 
Lanka
 
has
 
lowest
 
birth
 
rate,
 
death
 
rate
 
and
 
fertility
 
rate.
 
A
 
high
 
correlation
 
exists
 
between
 
population
 
growth
 
and
 
agricultural
 
Sectoral
 
share
 
to
 
GDP.
 
Per
 
capita
 
GDP
 
and
 
per
 
capita
 
energy
 
consumption
 
has
 
a
 
negative
 
correlation
 
with
 
population
 
growth.
 
In
 
South
 
Asia,
 
there
 
is
 
a
 
positive
 
relationship
 
between
 
industrial
 
Sectoral
 
share
 
to
 
GDP
 
and
 
per
 
capita
 
GDP
 
and
 
energy
 
consumption
 
per
 
head.
 
Relationship
 
is
 
also
 
established
 
between
 
land
 
man
 
ratio
 
and
 
land
 
degradation.
 
It
 
is
 
found
 
that
 
a
 
very
 
high
 
positive
 
correlation
 
i.e.
 
0.785
 
exists
 
between
 
both.
 
There
 
is
 
a
 
direct
 
positive
 
correlation
 
between
 
energy
 
consumption
 
and
 
deforestation,
 
and
 
carbon
 
dioxide
 
emission.
 
A
 
high
 
correlation
 
can
 
also
 
be
 
observed
 
between
 
carbon
 
dioxide
 
emission
 
and
 
number
 
of 
 
persons
 
below
 
1
 
US$
 
a
 
day
 
(an
 
important
 
indicator
 
of 
 
development)
 
per
 
capita
 
GDP
 
also
 
has
 
positive
 
tearing
 
upon
 
carbon
 
dioxide
 
emission,
 
deforestation
 
and
 
land
 
degradation.
 
A
 
positive
 
relationship
 
is
 
observed
 
between
 
industrial
 
Sectoral
 
share
 
to
 
total
 
GDP
 
and
 
carbon
 
dioxide
 
emissions.
 
Population
 
growth
 
has
 
a
 
direct
 
bearing
 
upon
 
number
 
of 
 
persons
 
below
 
poverty
 
line.
 
This
 
means
 
it
 
is
 
true
 
to
 
an
 
extent
 
that
 
high
 
population
 
growth
 
in
 
South
 
Asia
 
is
 
responsible
 
for
 
poverty,
 
which
 
has
 
high
 
correlation
 
with
 
various
 
environmental
 
issues.
 
 
South
 
Asian
 
nations
 
must
 
proceed
 
to
 
work
 
out
 
strategies
 
for
 
sustainable
 
development
 
rather
 
than
 
thinking
 
about
 
 just
 
economic
 
gains.
 
Main
 
focus
 
should
 
be
 
on
 
the
 
proper
 
distribution
 
of 
 
these
 
economic
 
gains.
 
The
 
segregation
 
of 
 
funds
 
in
 
various
 
sectors
 
has
 
to
 
be
 
in
 
 judicious
 
way.
 
Environmental
 
awareness
 
and
 
Green
 
technology
 
need
 
to
 
be
 
adopted
 
by
 
all
 
these
 
nations.
