NET Africa (Natural Environment Technology) was initiated in response to the outcome of COP 21 in Paris, on 12 December 2015. Parties to the UNFCCC reached a landmark agreement to combat climate change and to accelerate and intensify the actions and investments needed for a sustainable low carbon future. The organization was then officially registered in Brussels, Belgium in July 2017 as a AISBL.
NET Africa specializes in natural resource economics. Natural resource economics is a trans-disciplinary field of research within economics that aims to address the connections and interdependence between human economies and natural ecosystems. Its focus is on how to operate an economy within the ecological constraints of the earth's natural resources. The objective of NET Africa is to work in partnership with key stakeholders who are engaged in these interactions. We work with civil society, natural resource intensive industries, SMEs, universities, and governmental bodies.
