About Us


Protecting Nature and Indigenous Heritage = Sustainable Communities

Renevlyn Development Initiative (RDI) is a Nigerian non-governmental organisation that works with indigenous communities, grassroots groups and civil society to expose and challenge corporate impunity, unsound environmental practices and human rights violations.

RDI resists the exploitation of community resources without the Free Prior and Informed Consent of indigenous people. It aims to build the capacity of communities to influence government decisions, exercise their God-given sovereignty over what nature has bequeathed to them, and amplify their right to say YES or NO to exploitation of their resources.

RDI is a legal entity incorporated under Nigeria’s Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) on the 14 November 2023 and is identified with the registration number  IT/7224884.

RDI is also in compliance with the provisions of Section 17 (2) (a) of the Money Laundering (Prevention and Prohibition) Act 2022, and any other Law or Regulation.

The RDI staff come from a diverse background of environment activism, media advocacy and legislative engagement with decades of experience holding government to account on public services, issues concerning public health and amplifying the voices of communities impacted by extractives and corporate impunity.

To build vibrant communities where the rights of indigenous people are respected.  

Sustainable communities in which everyone enjoys equity and freedom from all forms of indignity.
