As a flagship project of NRGI, the 2021 RGI is a robust, evidence-based tool that allows stakeholders—such as governments, civil society actors, private companies and citizens—to understand how their countries perform in terms of resource governance. It is a freely available public data product that serves as a global benchmark, country and sector diagnostic tool, and a roadmap for policy and practice reform. The 2021 RGI is the latest edition and covers 18 countries across Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.
