Environics Trust is a not-for-profit research and community development organization. Their mission is to evolve innovative and evidence based solutions to the problems of community development that respond to the diversity and complexity of specific eco-systems and socio-political-cultural environments. Environics conducts participatory research on issues of environmental and human behavior and uses these outcomes for innovative community development programs.

Environics works directly with marginalized communities such as those in the mountain regions, tribes, and communities adversely affected by mining and industrialization.
