About Us

Please note that from 18th December 2023, theNRgroup was formally closed.  After 22 years of providing a forum for independent development and natural resource consultants to share opportunities and promote themselves worldwide, we have decided to cease being a formal entity.  Many of the consultants continue to work in development and can be contacted individually.  This website will be discontinued in September 2024.

We thank all those people and organisations who have worked with us for so many years.  

For information our remaining funds will be distributed to the Tropical Agriculture Association , VSO and Live Stream Trust, all of whom do good work in technical transfer, peer to peer working and research for natural resource management worldwide. 

The NRgroup was an association of independent international consultants who offer their expertise on the design, management and evaluation of natural resources and related sectors to projects and programmes worldwide. With a unique combination of skills and a wealth of professional experience members of the NRgroup provide fit-for-purpose and sustainable solutions for national and international activities.


theNRgroup was established in 2001 as an association of independent consultants providing a wide range of services promoting sustainable development throughout the world.

Many of its members previously worked at the Natural Resources Institute, currently part of the University of Greenwich. Further additions to the team continue to be selected to complement theNRgroup’s skill base and experience in light of new challenges and opportunities.

Members of the group have worked on projects all over the world, with local, regional and national government and non-government organisations, as well as with the private sector.

theNRgroup members collaborate through a virtual office, with access to resources on the group’s website, which hosts public and restricted areas. The members hold quarterly face to face meetings, discussing ongoing work, projects and policies involving international development and business opportunities.
