Nicola aims to establish a solid platform for the development, application and dissemination of sustainable practices, knowledge and technologies related to contaminated land management in Africa.

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.
