Most of the founding members previously worked together for the Natural Resources Institute, and set up theNRgroup following the restructuring of the Institute within the University of Greenwich and the increasing focus on teaching and training in the UK Higher Education sector.
TheNRgroup members provide training, research, consultancy and advisory services. We have experience of working at the community level and with local, national and international NGOs, with national governments, universities and research institutes.
Since August 2001 members of theNRgroup have worked on a wide range of projects funded by the World Bank, GEF, DFID. The Japanese Bank for International Cooperation, the Commonwealth Secretariat, Asian Development Bank, the EU, UNDP, FAO, and other organizations.
TheNRgroup operates a "virtual office". All group members can be contacted through theNRgroup - using their individual email addresses. Members details are available on the Members page, whilst summaries of Skills and Experience are also available on the Skills page. Members are also able to exchange information on projects, and obtain support from colleagues on specific quesions when required.
Vision and Values
Our vision is to contribute to the development and adoption of policy and practices which lead to the reduction of poverty and the achievement of sustainable livelihoods, increase in food security and resilience of communities in developing countries.
Consultants and Multidisciplinary Teams
Members of theNRgroup also have extensive overseas contacts with resource managers, engineers, planners and researchers working with the private sector, with NGOs, with universities and other institutions, and with government. The NR group can bring in these overseas contacts to provide local knowledge and expertise, and very significantly local project management experience.
