TN Khoshoo Memorial Award award
TN Khoshoo Memorial Award was instituted by ATREE in 2004 in the name of the late, great environmental science pioneer and former trustee, Dr. Triloki Nath Khoshoo, to recognise individuals who have made marked contributions to the field of ecology and environment and this year’s winners are Dr. Tanya Seshadri and Dr. NS Prashanth. “The TN Khoshoo awards are an essential aspect of ATREE's activity to continuously recognize, reward and support significant work being done in the environmental space,” said Dr. Darshan Shankar, Trustee of ATREE and Vice Chancellor, Transdisciplinary University.
AREST Partnership at COP26
The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) was held in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom from 31 October to 13 November 2021. The Alliance for Reversing Ecosystem Service Threats (AREST), which is a partnership between Ashoka Trust For Research In Ecology And The Environment (ATREE), Columbia University, Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), Foundation for Ecological Security (FES), and World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) participated in multiple engagements at the COP26.

AREST presented scientific evidence for adopting socio-ecologically responsible interventions to address land degradation. Such an approach, rooted in good science and good economics, will generate jobs, support local livelihoods, sequester carbon, and deliver co-benefits on nutrition, biodiversity conservation, and food and water security.
