Vision and Values for the NRGroup
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.
We do this by assuring rigour and relevance in research, practical and realisable policy guidelines, smart organisational management practices and by back-stopping technical innovation. Inspired and positive change is supported through effective monitoring and evaluation, within and cross-institutional communication and information dissemination.
