NRGI has unveiled the 2017 Resource Governance Index (RGI). The index includes new assessments of oil, gas and mining governance in 81 countries. It comprises primary research on value realization and revenue management, and draws on existing research to paint a picture of countries’ enabling environments for governance. The assessments take into account laws and practices concerning licensing, taxation, state-owned enterprises, sovereign wealth funds, subnational revenue sharing, national budgeting, local impacts of extraction, and more.
Index results and analysis are at www.resourcegovernanceindex.org, and a global webcast at 2:30 p.m. BST (8:30 a.m. COT/CDT, 9:30 a.m. EDT, 1:30 p.m. GMT, 4:30 p.m. EAT, 8:00 p.m. MMT, 8:30 p.m. WIB) on the launch date will feature:
