URBANET was established in July, 2003 and registered subsequently with the Registrar Generals Department in 2005 as a local non-governmental organization with a commitment to dealing with the challenges of increasing landlessness of smallholder farmers, challenges of climate change on food and livelihood security, and the ever expanding youth population with low skills and livelihoods opportunities. Exploring the potentials and opportunities available in local communities to build community resilience based on community resources and indigenous knowledge patterns has been the key driver of the organization over the years.
