Dr Siddiqui’s book is targeted to help in research, understanding regional development, planning, policy and management

ALIGARH December 11: Professor, Dr Farasat Ali Siddiqui’s (Department of Geography, Aligarh Muslim University) ‘Population, Resource and Development’ seeks to advance knowledge of relationships between population and social, economic, and environmental change and provides a forum for discussion of related issues of public policy.


Published by Genuine Publications and Media Pvt. LTD, the book is spread over four sections, namely, population and development, education, policy and planning, the resource utilization and environment, and the minorities in India.    


Besides being of great relevance to geographers, demographers and other social scientists, Dr Siddiqui’s book is targeted to help in research, understanding regional development, planning, policy and management.


The book will throw light on how many places are in relatively early stages of fertility decline and will experience age waves for generations. The book further shows that these waves create shifting flows of people into the key age groups, greatly complicating the task of managing development, from building human capabilities and creating jobs to growing industry, infrastructure and institutions. In this book, different chapters examine key demographic, social, economic, and policy aspects of age structural change. Dr Siddiqui’s book also examines policy consequences and options and develops qualitative and formal methods to analyze the dynamics and consequences of age structural change.
