Policy & Advocacy

We use research and action to support evidence-based research, policy and planning that can deliver sustainable development

Using the collective SONRREC voice, we advocate for improved national for sustainable natural resources exploitation. We aim to protect against overexploitation, misuse, and improve governance by strategically engaging SONRREC members in key national negotiations.

SONRREC recognize that managing natural resources is a complex undertaking, and having measures adopted that safeguard associated communities and ecosystems are vital to management. SONRREC work to advance this perspective at important international natural resources management meetings, particularly the research institutions and think thanks, that are actively involved in the sector. Advocacy activities include the development of position statements, encouraging members to vocally support management improvements ahead of key meetings, and taking part in relevant scientific and policy meetings.
