Abstract

'New industrialisation' has created severe water pollution problems in a village in Andhra Pradesh. Treating pollution simply as an externality leads to the destruction of natural resources and a skewed distribution of costs and compensation. Social vulnerability and the existence of powerful lobbies have allowed the pollution to continue unabated in spite of a Supreme Court ruling.
