Centre for Policy Design – [Cloned #sree]

For almost three decades, ATREE has generated rigorous interdisciplinary knowledge to inform policy and practice towards conservation and sustainability. ATREE engages with a range of policy stakeholders to create an impact that balances the tradeoffs between addressing chronic poverty and inequality whilst promoting the conservation of landscapes and sustaining ecosystem services. Many of these policy interventions emerged as a result of ATREE’s extensive knowledge and long term engagement with issues such as water quality and management, biodiversity conservation, forest rights and governance and invasive species.

The Centre for Policy Design was instituted in 2019 to facilitate the dialogue between Science-Policy-Praxis and enable advocacy for scientifically and ecologically sound policy in the country, drawing from ATREE’s wide-ranging expertise, knowledge and experience.

Currently, we are working on a range of ecological and environmental policy issues related to:

  • Ecosystem Restoration
  • Forest Governance
  • Water and Society
  • Invasive Species
  • Biodiversity Conservation
