The Indian Institute of Ecology and Environment (IIEE) is a Government of India sponsored, autonomous, non-profit making institution formed with a view to impart teaching and provide a sustained platform for research and consultancy in the areas of ecology and environment. The Institute is located at New Delhi, India.[2]


The Indian Institute of Ecology and Environment, Paryavaran Complex, South of Saket, New Delhi owes its origin to the deliberations at Founes (1971), Stockholm (1972) and Belgrade (1975) and subsequent resolutions and recommendations of the Intergovernmental Conference on Environment at Tbilisi in 1977 organised by UNEP and UNESCO. The Institute was established as a public charitable trust on 5 June 1980 for organising programs and providing learning platform in the areas of ecology, environment, pollution control, disaster management, sustainable development, ecological tourism and environmental education. The Institute also colloborates with the Government of Delhi in conducting ecological education in more than 1000 schools in New Delhi. The Institute arranges for technology transfer on environmental engineering, impact assessment, pollution monitoring and control, systems analysis, wildlife conservation, environmental communication, ecological education and environmental laws.[2]
