Join the Winning Team at Natural Resources Management!

Natural resources are the basis of livelihoods and economies of every nation in Asia. Given the rich cultural, social, political, and biophysical diversity across Asia, the professionals working in natural resources management need a strong working knowledge of interrelated sciences. NRM is designed to train the professionals in contemporary topics related to terrestrial and coastal resources, ranging from their stocktaking, sustainable use and governance to climate change mitigation and adaptation through interdisciplinary approaches. Through teaching, research and outreach activities, the NRM FoS seeks to develop professionals who can contribute to the conservation and sustainable management of natural resources, including terrestrial and coastal resources.

The complex nature of NRM issues requires a broad range of skills and techniques ranging from the social to the physical sciences. The NRM field of study therefore specializes in areas as diverse as community-based natural resources management, forestation and forestry, integrated land management, biodiversity conservation, climate mitigation/adaptation, and the valuation of ecosystem services. We provide education and research opportunities leading to Master and Ph.D. degrees in NRM. NRM also provides training, outreach and capacity-building opportunities to a growing number of partners on many NRM related areas. In addition to providing training, we have assisted universities in Nepal, Indonesia, Laos PDR, Vietnam, Cambodia and other countries to develop their capacity to implement academic programs related to natural resources management.

AIT has unique multicultural environnent. We have awarded M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees to students from most South and Southeast Asian countries as well as from beyond this region. As an institute, AIT has an alumni body of over 15,000 from more than 80 countries/territories and more than 23000 short-term trainees from over 70 countries/territories. The current student body is dynamic and highly diverse representing more than 40 counties/territories. The faculty body is composed of 130 world class faculty from over 20 countries.

NRM FoS alone has its alumni body of more than 20 Doctoral and 360 Master’s degree graduates from more than 20 countries in last 15 years. Managing natural resources requires interdisciplinary competency and hence NRM curriculum at AIT is uniquely designed by integrating different sciences (biophysical, spatial, political and socioeconomic) to provide necessary skills and tools needed for the Natural Resources Manager. We expect our graduates to be able to i) assess the natural resources and the environment through inventory, mapping and monitoring techniques; ii) analyze the problems, potentials, and perspectives through a broad spectrum of analytical methods from physical, social, economic, and political sciences; and iii) Develop and apply the solutions and alternatives through planning and management by integrating disciplines, spatial and time scales and stakeholders.
