NRGI has unveiled the 2017 Resource Governance Index, which assesses the governance of oil, gas and mining in 81 countries, in policy areas including state-owned enterprises, taxation, licensing, local impact, sovereign wealth funds and subnational revenue sharing. Access the data at www.resourcegovernanceindex.org.
Watch the recorded webcast of expert speakers including former president of Mexico Ernesto Zedillo discussing the findings of the new index. Participate in the ongoing discussion using #ResourceGovernanceIndex.
New index shows promise in some developing countries, but raises alarms over sovereign wealth funds and citizens’ freedom to hold governments to account.
