CRED was founded in May 2011 as a non-political, non-religious and non-profit making research and advocacy organization. By working with Governments and communities, CRED promotes the relevance of public policy to the needs of the people through advocating for a governance framework that upholds values of transparency and accountability, constitutionalism and rule of law and adherence to democratic values and principles in policy formulation and implementation.

The driving vision of CRED is “An empowered community that promotes equitable utilization and sustainable governance of natural resources for poverty alleviation and social transformation”. The mission is “to implement research, advocacy and outreach initiatives that empower citizens and local communities to demand for transparency, accountability and participation in decision making and work with duty bearers to promote good Natural Resources governance”.
