The International Alliance on Natural Resources in Africa (IANRA) is a global network of organisations that combine community organising, research and evidence-based advocacy to strive for more just and sustainable use of natural resources in Africa.

The current network includes 51 non-governmental and community-based organisations, mostly in Africa, with an international linkage in the Netherlands. National groupings of IANRA members can have up to 30 member organisations, including civil society and social movements.


We seek to create a united Africa where poor and excluded people can enjoy their rights to equitable benefits from natural resources in a sustainable way.

To this end, we enable social, environmental and economic justice in the natural resources sector towards the empowerment of excluded communities through research, lobbying, advocacy and campaigning.
