Purpose

Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE) is a global non-profit organization that generates interdisciplinary knowledge to inform policy and practice towards conservation and sustainability.

For over two decades, ATREE has worked on social-environmental issues from local to global policy levels. ATREE envisions a society committed to environmental conservation and sustainable and socially just development.

Our mission is to generate rigorous interdisciplinary knowledge for achieving environmental conservation and sustainable development, to enable the use of this knowledge by policymakers and society, and to train the next generation of environmental leaders.

To deliver on our mission, we work across issues like biodiversity and conservation, climate change mitigation and development, land and water resources, forests and governance, and ecosystem services and human well-being.

Structure

ATREE's organizational structure is designed to promote creative interdisciplinary approaches that integrate research with policy and action in addressing critical environmental problems. Two research
centers, the Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation and the Centre for Environment and Development, together with the Academy of Conservation Science and Sustainability Studies, provides the structure to conduct insightful research that fuels our thought leadership on policy issues and drives our capacity building activities.

The two centers represent broad thematic areas under which are nested six cohesive inter-linked programs.
