India's foremost environmentalist Sunita Narain gives a personal account of her battles as part of the country's green movement.

While outlining the enormous environmental challenges that India faces today, Narain talks about how corporate lobbies and political interests often scuttle their effective resolution.

She recounts some widely reported controversies triggered by research undertaken by her along with her team at the Centre for Science and Environment, such as a report on pesticides in colas, and a study on air pollution in Delhi, and includes a ringside view of global climate change negotiations.

“Conflicts of Interest” also includes an 'environmental manifesto', a blueprint for the direction India must take if it is to deal with the exigencies of climate change and environmental degradation.
