The NRIC archived collections in the U.S. Agency for International Development's (USAID) Natural Resources Management and Development Portal contain reports generated by USAID, its contractors, and its partners. These reports describe the projects and other USAID natural resource activities and their impacts and lessons learned. Included are progress reports, technical reports, project evaluations, books, articles, and conference proceedings. Information in the NRIC Project Catalogue were primarily from USAID’s Congressional Budget Justification, USAID annual reports (R4s), Mission and contractor web sites, and USAID project-generated reports. Project documents were gathered from these same sources and in large part from the USAID Development Experience Clearinghouse. Information collection began in 2000. The project went into archive status in 2007 when it was incorporated into the USAID Resources Management and Development Portal.
