The most important achievements of the center are publishing the EWC quarterly. The Center through publications, website, reporting environmental news, research -reports and interviews attempts to bring transparency to the meanings of environmental values and the menacing environmental issues of Iran, in the hope of attracting every-body’s attention to the necessity of preserving those values and finding solutions to the devastating environmental problems. It is in the agenda of the Center to report the opinions of the scientists, researchers, and experts on any relevant environmental issues in their name and also to report the problems of any group of people who have suffered from environmental pollution, its devastating effects and side effects, such as deplorable living conditions, deaths and diseases, as seen in the case of relocated and displaced indigenous people.
