Oil, Gas and Mining for Development

On 28 June, NRGI will unveil the 2017 Resource Governance Index, which assesses the governance of oil, gas and mining in 81 countries, in policy areas including state-owned enterprises, sovereign wealth funds and subnational revenue sharing. Expert speakers including former president of Mexico Ernesto Zedillo will launch the index during a webcast at 1430 BST on 28 June.
