The Centre for Environment Information System believes that providing education and disseminating information on current environmental issues are the primary means of addressing the issues afflicting our environment at present. Towards this endeavour, the centre has been currently undertaking the following activities in close collaboration with Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), Govt. of India.

Establishment and maintenance of Environmental Information System (ENVIS) Centre :

Realising the need for reliable and adequate information on environment at the MoEF, Govt. of India set up an Environmental Information System (ENVIS) in 1982 as a comprehensive network in environmental information collection, collation, storage, retrieval and dissemination to various users, which include decision-makers, researchers, academicians, policy planners etc. Information base includes both descriptive Information as well as numerical data. Descriptive information in the form of publications, reports, reprints and abstracts on related subjects is stored for dissemination. Numerical data on the subject are collected, compiled, processed and analysed for the purpose of dissemination. All the information thus compiled is made available on the website of the ENVIS centre. EMPRI has developed an ENVIS website and hosted at Karnataka State ENVIS Centre Website

Indian State Level Basic Environmental Information Database (ISBEID) :

In order to develop the relevant databases on several environment and its related parameters and also, to make it available online, MoEF, Govt. of India under the ENVIS project developed a Web enabled software called ISBEID, to feed information directly into database. ISBEID includes 17 modules comprising environmental information about air, water, land resources, forest bio-diversity, infrastructure etc. Necessary information collected from the authentic sources are fed into ISBEID server maintained at National Informatics Centre (NIC) towards building an environmental compendium for public and various other stakeholders.Indian State Level Basic Environmental Information Database
