Extractive industries can generate substantial revenues—but how do we measure, report and utilize information on environmental and social impacts to ensure good governance of natural resources? Fiscal and non-fiscal impacts are often monitored and governed by different actors leading to incomplete understanding of the sector’s overall impacts. Can more integrated modelling, measurement and reporting improve policymaking and sector governance?
