Identifying, Assessing and Managing Contaminated Land Efficiently, Cost-Effectively, and within a Framework of Sustainability.
NICOLA is a forum on contaminated land management in Africa, promoting co-operation between industry, academia and service providers on the development and application of sustainable technologies. The overall objective of NICOLA is to pro-actively enable the African Industrial and Mining sector to identify, assess and manage contaminated land efficiently, cost-effectively, and within a framework of sustainability. NICOLA focuses its activities in three main themes:       
  • Provide an African forum for the dissemination and exchange of good practice, practical and scientific knowledge and ideas to manage contaminated land in a sustainable way; 
  • Stimulate coordinated, interdisciplinary projects on collaborative, problem oriented research and knowledge transfer to address identified needs; and 
  • Develop new relationships and strengthen existing relationships with other networks.
