Environmental Resources Research Centre

The Environmental Resources Research Centre (ERRC) was established in August 1991 as an autonomous R&D centre for sustainable natural resource management and education. Since its inception, the ERRC has emerged as a centre of excellence in research, higher education and public interest services, as testified by the recognition and support accorded by the national and international organizations, like the DST, MoEF, CSIR, ICAR, Ministry of Defence (Govt. of India), UNDP, ADB, and the World Bank. In addition, an array of public and private organizations has commissioned the centre for environmental impact assessment (EIA) and environment management studies. The credibility and excellence of the centre is further enhanced by its affiliation to the Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, Kerala, for Doctoral research leading to Ph.D. degree in Environmental Science.
