International Association for People-Environment Studies

The International Association for People-Environment Studies (IAPS) was established in 1981, to facilitate interdisciplinary debate and international collaboration in environment-behavior research and man-environment studies, with its primary goal to improve the quality of life. IAPS is a multidisciplinary association of researchers and practitioners from around the world, with a shared interest in people’s interaction with their environment, and is committed to support the coexistence, reciprocal understanding and collaboration of theoretical, practical work and lobbying activities (from the IAPS website).
