IFP is an internationally recognized institution
– For its collections (manuscripts on palm leaves classified by UNESCO, herbarium, photo library…)
– For the quality of its research, in fields as diverse as Sanskrit texts, forest dynamics, or social water management.
The allocations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the CNRS now represent only half of our budget. Would you like to participate in the maintenance of our superb historic building, give research grants? The stakes are enormous for India and the whole planet in terms of climate change, sustainable development, urbanization, food security, natural and cultural heritage, historical and religious identities!
