NRI Achievements

NRI is the recipient of two Queen's Anniversary Prizes, in 2000 and 2008 for its contribution to addressing food crisis and poverty reduction in sub-Saharan Africa.

NRI's Professor of Development Anthropology, John Morton, was a Lead Author on the Fourth Assessment Report of the Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2007, and is currently serving as a Coordinating Lead Author on the Fifth Assessment Report, to be published in 2014.

In 2009, research carried out by NRI was named as one of the ten most important discoveries to be made in a UK university over the past 60 years. A Universities UK poll of academics recognised NRI's work on controlling the tsetse fly in Africa, which is helping to combat the fatal disease, sleeping sickness.
