The Natural Resources Institute (NRI) of the University of Greenwich is a leader in natural resources research, promoting efficient management and use of renewable natural resources in support of sustainable livelihoods. Research is primarily focused on developing and emerging economies. NRI's presence and research partnerships in developing countries, and its training and capacity building programmes, provide the platform for the Institute to develop and disseminate key technologies and knowledge. This has resulted in substantial impact at farmer and community level, and has made significant contributions to the international research community. Much of the work also involves interaction with the developed world where it is equally applicable.
Our Research Groups report to two units of assesment, Agriculture, Food and Veterinary Sciences and Anthropology and Development Studies. Further information including group members, projects and publications can be found below.
Impact is central to everything NRI does. Below you can find examples of our Impact Case Studies.
An important constituency within all of our Research Groups are our Early Career Researchers (ECRs). We have an active ECR Network that aims to develop skills, promote inter-disciplinarity and foster a collegiate research environment for those at an early state in their research careers. The ECR Network’s agenda is set by the ECRs themselves and seeks to be inclusive and focussed on maximising career potential.
Our Research and Development work is also organised to address thematic challenges. Contact Professor Ben Bennett for more details.
