What We Do

ENRRI operates in three core areas:

Research
▪ We conduct policy-relevant research, grounded in local realities and on a wide range of topics, with emphasis on coastal and mineral resource management, extractive industries, energy resources management, climate change, and green growth.

Capacity Development
▪ Beyond contributing actively to teaching activities in the host institutions, we organize short-term training programs to build capacity among junior researchers, graduate students, and decision makers in Ghana, based on current and emerging environment and natural resource management challenges.

Policy Advice and Research Communication
▪ ENRRI supports government with evidence-based policy advice on natural resources management issues. We also provide regular updates on changes in the state of natural resources to key decision makers, including national and local government, government agencies and other natural resource custodians, through policy briefs and other communication media.

▪ ENRRI publishes evidence-based materials such as discussion papers, policy briefs, journal articles, feature articles, and media releases to share research findings with its stakeholders in government, academia, civil society organizations (CSOs), non-government organizations (NGOs), and other policy and advocacy groups. Further, we organize public events such as conferences, seminars, workshops, book launches, and lectures. These provide a platform for researchers, decision makers, students, and other stakeholders to meet and set the research agenda, discuss and validate research findings, and network.
