About Envis


Realizing the importance of Environmental Information, the Government of India in December 1982, established an Environmental Information System (ENVIS) as a plan programme. A large number of nodes, known as ENVIS Centres, have been established in the network to cover the broad subject areas of environment with a Focal Point in the Ministry of Environment & Forests (MoEF), Government of India, New Delhi.

Thematic Area:

The focus of ENVIS since inception has been on providing environmental information to decision makers, policy planners, scientists and engineers, research workers, etc all over the country. Since environment is a wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary subject, a comprehensive information system on environment would necessarily involve effective participation of concerned institutions/organizations in the country that are actively engaged in work relating to different subject areas of environment. ENVIS has, therefore, developed itself with a network of such participating institutions/organizations for the programme to be meaningful.

Long term objectives:

• To build up a repository and dissemination centre of environmental information.
• To gear up modern technologies of acquisition, processing, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information.
• To support and promote research, development and innovation in environmental information technology.

Short term objectives:

• To provide national environmental information service relevant to present needs and capable of development to meet the future needs of the users, originators, processors and disseminators of information.
• To build up storage, retrieval and dissemination capabilities with the ultimate objectives of disseminating information speedily to the users.
• To promote, national and international cooperation and liaison for exchange of environment related information.
• To promote, support and assist education and personnel training programmes designed to enhance environmental information processing and utilisation capabilities.
• To promote exchange of information amongst developing countries.
