GB Pant Institute of Himalayan Environment & Development (GBPIHED)
G. B. Pant Institute of Himalayan Environment and Development was established in August 1988, at Kosi-Katarmal, Almora, as an Autonomous Institute of the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India. The Institute is identified as a focal agency, to advance scientific knowledge, to evolve integrated management strategies, demonstrate their efficacy for conservation of natural resources and to ensure environmentally sound development in the entire Indian Himalayan Region (IHR). Apart from undertaking research and technology development and/or demonstration on its own, the G.B Pant Institute of Himalayan Environment & Development (GBPIHED) has established linkages with National and International Organizations committed to environment and development linked issues in the mountain regions.
The Institute has been recognized as a nodal agency for research and development programmes in the Indian Himalaya by the Planning Commission, the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India, and many International organizations. All R&D activities of the Institute are essentially multi-disciplinary in nature, and based on a conscious effort to interlink natural and social sciences to promote sustainable development.
Vision and Area of Operation of GBPIHED
The G.B Pant Institute of Himalayan Environment & Development (GBPIHED) functions under a Society, guided by a Governing Body and a Science Advisory Committee. It has a decentralized set up, with its headquarters at Kosi-Katarmal, Almora, and at present four other units are operational at Srinagar (Garhwal Unit), Mohal – Kullu (Himachal Unit), Tadong-Gangtok (Sikkim Unit) and Itanagar (NE Unit).
