The Natural Resources Institute (NRI) of the University of Greenwich is a unique multi-disciplinary centre of excellence. We have an established reputation for delivering high quality research, advice, teaching and training in support of global food security, sustainable development and poverty reduction.
Nearly one billion people in the world do not have enough food to eat, with 98% of these in developing countries. Seventy-five per cent of the world's poorest people - 1.4 billion women, children, and men – live in rural areas and depend on agriculture and related activities for their livelihood. By 2050, the population of the world is predicted to increase from the present 6.8 billion to nearly 9 billion. Climate change is a major threat to many communities in the world. Knowledge generated by NRI is more important than ever to contribute to feeding the world and is reflected in our theme of "knowledge to feed the world"
