As prices of various commodities fall, many resource-rich countries are facing increasingly difficult choices. This series of articles, by NRGI experts and the organization’s partners, explores specific challenges in different contexts, as well as the solutions open to countries facing lowered investment, reduced government revenues, and increasing deficits. The series kicked off in February 2015, when the Financial Times’ BeyondBRICs blog published our overview piece.
Wherever possible, we discuss where opportunities lie to improve economic management, rationalize resource-based development, improve public understanding of extractive industries, and jump-start governance reform. If you have feedback on the ideas expressed in the pieces below, please feel free to contact Thomas Lassourd (firstname.lastname@example.org) and David Manley (email@example.com).
