NRI is a specialized Institute and School of the University of Greenwich at its Medway Campus, in the county of Kent, England. The University of Greenwich is a multi-campus University in south-east London and Kent, serving higher education needs both locally and nationally within the UK, and regionally in the European Union, and reaching out to provide research, consultancy and education services worldwide, especially through the long-established international activities of NRI in the developing world on the sustainable management of natural and human resources. Although a major component of NRIs work in the past has been concerned with developing countries and those with economies in transition, its expertise has increasingly proved to be of growing relevance to the development and management of natural resources in industrialised countries. In recent years, NRIs collaboration with the Universitys School of Science at Medway has further extended NRIs skills in natural resources issues to span the world from the poorest developing countries to the most highly industrialised countries. The Institute currently has about 70 scientific, academic and technical staff, working in a wide range of disciplines in the natural and social sciences, assisted by about 10 managerial and administrative support staff, in a flexible team-based organisation. Current NRI staffs have over 350 person-years of experience of working and living in the developing world. Each year these staff undertake over 500 professional overseas assignments in over 80 countries (mainly in the developing world or in countries with transitional economies) as consultants, researchers, advisors or educators. NRIs associates provide additional expertise in a wide range of specialisms, working alongside our core staff on specific projects. Within the wider University, NRI staff work with others in the fields of health, education, law, business, architecture, engineering, earth and environmental sciences, and chemical and life sciences, bringing interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approaches to bear on issues of natural-resource management, especially to improve the quality of life of the rural and urban poor. 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. NRIs presence and research partnerships in developing countries, and its training and capacity building programmes, provides 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.
