Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE)

Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE) is a research institution in biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. It focuses on applied science through research, education and action that influence policy and practices on conservation of nature, management of natural resources, and sustainable development. ATREE envisions a society committed to environmental conservation and sustainable and socially just development, in which ATREE plays the role of a model knowledge-generating organization for catalyzing the transition to such a society.

Established in 1996, ATREE integrates interdisciplinary approaches to meet contemporary environmental challenges. In a relatively short period, ATREE has emerged as a premier research institution in South Asia in the area of biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. In a recent survey of non-governmental organizations and research think tanks by the University of Pennsylvania, ATREE was ranked #19 globally amongĀ environment policy think tanks.
