The Centre was constituted to work on urban ecosystem approach to urban policy development and management of Imphal City, sub urban areas and towns of Manipur. The Centre will devote its main focus on making Imphal, a green and clean city for better development and healthy environment. 

In recent years, environmental policy and researchers have advocated an ecosystem approach in light of the growing importance of ecological issues and the recognition of the interconnectedness of social, economic, and environmental systems. The ecosystem approach is particularly important for urban areas as increasing cumulative and systemic environmental problems, ranging from poor health due to lack of access to sanitation and water supply, to vehicular related local air pollution, to over–consumption and climate change can be traced back to patterns of activities and growth in cities.
