About Us

The Environmental and Economic Resource Centre (EERC) is a non-profit, scientific research organization focusing on sustainable practices and development in agriculture, environment, and natural resources in Africa.

EERC is based in Nigeria with regional offices across the West, East, North and Central Africa.

We work in partnership with governments, civil society and the private sector to develop scalable agricultural and environmental management practices with real impact on poverty reduction, food security, ecosystem health, conservation, and livelihood development.

Our mission

We will promote quality research, build and develop human capacity through trainings, and project implementations for livelihood development and sustainable environment.

Our vision

To catalyze and develop inclusive agriculture, sustainable livelihoods, natural resource conservation, and environmental management in Africa through research and capacity building, and to support African countries on a pathway to sustainable development.

What we do

We understand that sub Saharan Africa countries are mostly agrarian with increasing challenge of food security, climate change, and poverty in the face of the need to ensure global sustainable development. EERC identifies the need for uniquely African solutions design to meet the environmental and agricultural needs in the continent and to promote sustainable increase in food production with less impact on the environment.
