About Environmental Information System (ENVIS) Centre
With great pleasure we would like to share with you that Ministry of Environment Forest and climate change (MOEFCC) has sanctioned an ENVIS (Environmental Information System) Centre to disseminate scientific, technical, and semi-technical information on various issues related to biological invasion (Invasive Alien Species) and conduct related research and extension activities.
Preventing and mitigating biological invasions is crucial to protect biodiversity, as well as food security, human health and the global economy. By recognizing the fact MOEFCC has recognized Centre for Sustainable Future at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham as ENVIS Resource Partner on the theme Invasive Alien Species.
ENVIS network has been designed as the National Focal Point (NFP) for INFOTERRA, a global environmental information network of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
