Western Regional Centre, Mumbai

Rapid economic growth, resulting in urbanization and industrial development is often associated with extensive resource utilization and hence requires effective management of natural resources. To address some of the prevalent issues in the western region such as malnourishment, degradation of natural resources, acute energy shortages, and impacts of haphazard urbanization, our centre in Mumbai engages in multidisciplinary, high-impact research and consultancy for international and national agencies. It has thus established a strong network with government organizations, academia, corporates and the workforce active at the grassroots.
