On the 21st April 2011, Local MP for Rochester and Strood, Mark Reckless paid a visit to the NRI to attend a series of short presentations regarding our work in developing nations, researching pest and disease control to support farmers in Africa, and helping poorer nations adapt to the effects of climate change.
Mark Reckless says: "I was delighted to spend time at the Natural Resources Institute, which is, in many ways, an academic jewel in the crown of my constituency."
"I learned about their extremely impressive range of resource work. As an economist, I particularly enjoyed discussing their work to help less developed countries deal with private, as well as public, trade standards."
"I congratulate the Natural Resources Institute for everything it does for my constituency, the country and the developing world."
