Network for Industrially Contaminated Land in Africa (NICOLA)

NICOLA is a forum for contaminated land management in Africa, which aims to establish a solid platform for the development, application and dissemination of sustainable practices, knowledge and technologies. NICOLA promotes co-operation between industry & mining, academia, regulators and service providers while linking closely with the fields of contaminant hydrogeology, geochemistry and waste management.

The overall objective of NICOLA is to pro-actively empower the African contaminated land management sector to identify, assess and manage contaminated land within a science based sustainable best practice framework.

NICOLA focuses its activities in three main themes:

  • Knowledge sharing: Provide an African forum for the dissemination and exchange of good practice, practical and scientific knowledge and ideas to manage contaminated land sustainably;
  • Networking: Develop new relationships and strengthen existing relationships with other networks; and
  • Inspire scientific best practice: Stimulate coordinated, interdisciplinary projects on collaborative, problem oriented research and knowledge transfer to address identified needs.
