Dear Hritik Bhatnagar
We are very happy to share with you all that ATREE is ranked #20 out of the top 99 Environment Policy Think Tanks, and # 14 out of the top 75 Water Security Think Tanks in the world on the University of Pennsylvania's 2020 'Global Go To Think Tank Index Report". The consistent ranking over the past years reflect the work that our researchers produce as they investigate new and exciting areas of sustainability science in India.
Also, we are pleased to inform you that Mr. Vamsidhar Pothula has joined us as Chief Operating Officer & Registrar. Mr. Vamsidhar brings with him over 25 years of national and international experience in managing extensive and complex operations and building engaged teams from scratch. The experience is coupled with a penchant for learning, dealing with challenges, and working in varied cultures and geographies. We welcome Vamsi to the team as ATREE positions its operations to support our work on the rapidly evolving challenges facing our ecosystems, environment and people.
As the Covid19 vaccinations are administered and life glides into the "new normal", we hope to see you all in person soon. Have you received your vaccine yet?
