Karnataka is developing a new policy to address sustainability issues and challenges in consultation with industry, a minister said Thursday.”The key challenge is to strike a balance between development and sustainable use of natural resources. We are framing a new policy to ensure that socio-economic development will not be at the cost of environment and the fragile ecosystem,” Forest, Environment and Ecology Minister Ramnath Rai said at a conference on ‘Indian Life Cycle Assessment and Management’ here.
