Resource Conflict Institute (RECONCILE) is a regional policy research and advocacy NGO registered in Kenya and implementing programmes in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. The Institute conducts policy and legal research on environmental and natural resources, undertakes public interest environmental and natural resources education and litigation and advocate for policies, laws and practices that empower resource dependent communities to influence policy processes and institutions that have a bearing on their access to natural resources and management of natural resource conflicts.
RECONCILE is managed by a Secretariat which reports to a Board of Directors. The Board is the top policy and decision-making organ of the Institute, responsible for providing strategic leadership and acting as a link between the organization, the target groups and the society in general.
The Secretariat is led by the Executive Director, who sits on the Board and is its Secretary. It implements programmes and projects to realize the mandate of the organization. The Secretariat is currently comprised of 10 members of staff, three of them providing administrative support to programme work. In addition, the organization hosts both local and foreign interns – 3 of them at a time. RECONCILE also has access to the services of Associates, who though not members of staff, are available for short-term appointments and provide intellectual input into the work of the Institute.
