Abstract

The study at hand started with the modest goal of discussing economic and social implications of degraded Antroscape, for the upstream, transitory and downstream zones. Secondarily, the study aims to set up the necessary tools which can be used in the assessment of degraded Antroscape and also in developing policy tools for sustainable optimal solutions. Recent literature on degraded antroscape lacks perspectives with alternative approaches which could complement to the efforts of soil engineers, environmentalists as well as economists. While, the work at hand incorporates economic growth perspective with sustainable land use; alternative measurement techniques are also discussed where each fulfills the need for a holistic and integrative approach in quantifying assessment and solutions. Current literature require further alternative approaches of handling a complex issue like environment that its inhabitants sharing and degrading the existing antroscape.
