Introduction to NRI We undertake research, consultancy and training to support global food security, sustainable development and… [+] poverty reduction in developing countries. Our experts in agriculture, food systems and natural resource management work in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders, from major international development agencies to community based organisations. Our Mission The Natural Resources Institute (NRI) is a specialist institute of the University of Greenwich. We provide research, consultancy, training and advisory services to underpin sustainable development, economic growth and poverty reduction. The majority of our activities focus on the harnessing of natural and human capital for the benefit of developing countries, though much of our expertise has proved to be of growing relevance to industrialised nations. Our mission is to discover, apply and share knowledge in support of global food security, sustainable development and poverty reduction. History The Natural Resources Institute (NRI) became part of the University of Greenwich in May 1996. Since the official opening of the Imperial Institute by Queen Victoria on 10th May 1893, NRI and its predecessors have undertaken research, consultancy and training in the management of natural resources. Today's NRI has evolved from the development and amalgamation of many parent organisations. The oldest of these, the Imperial Institute, was based in Kensington, London, and its Scientific and Technical Department was primarily concerned with identifying and promoting new uses of tropical products in the time of the Empire. The work undertaken by the Department was taken over by the Tropical Products Institute (TPI) in 1958. Another organisation, the Anti-Locust Research Centre (ALRC), was formed in the 1920s within the Imperial Bureau of Entomology, primarily to address issues relating to the improved forecasting and control of this important migrant pest. In 1964, both organisations became scientific units of the Ministry of Overseas Development and were involved in a wide range of research and technical activities conducted increasingly overseas. They were joined by the Land Resources Development Centre (LRDC) in 1964. LRDC originated in the Directorate of Colonial Surveys, with the work of the Centre arising from the use of aerial photography developed during the Second World War as a means of providing information necessary for planning agricultural development. Meanwhile, TPI took over the Tropical Stored Products Centre, based in Slough, and its work gradually broadened to cover perishable foodstuffs such as meat, fish, fruits, vegetables and root crops. In the early 1970s the ALRC broadened its remit to include other aspects of plant and animal protection as the Centre for Overseas Pest Research (COPR). In the early 1980s, COPR and TPI were amalgamated to form the Tropical Development and Research Institute (TDRI), managed by the Overseas Development Administration of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. TDRI relocated to Chatham in 1988 at which time it joined with LRDC to form the Overseas Development Natural Resources Institute (ODNRI). The Institute became NRI in 1990. In 1992 the UK Government announced plans to move certain of its scientific institutions to the Higher Education sector. By this time, part of the Chatham site was sub-let to the University of Greenwich which expressed an interest in acquiring the Institute. The final transfer of the Institute to the University of Greenwich occurred in 1996, following a formal bidding process.
