NRGI’s blog—which showcases the breadth of expertise of a global team and delves into the most pressing issues in resource governance—received thousands of unique visits this year.
Readers favored detailed long-reads posing provocative and original questions, analytical pieces on highly complex topics and output tied to breaking news and global events in the transparency space. These included posts testing a model for monitoring Ghanaian oil revenue, parsing Zambia’s new mining tax regime, and linking the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative to the massive Panama Papers leak. Three of the most-read posts concerned the Anti-Corruption Summit held in London in May.
As 2016 draws to a close, read—or reread—this collection of NRGI’s most popular editorial output, starting with the most-visited post.
And three of NRGI’s most-read blogs in 2016 showed a curiously long shelf life: they were published in 2015. They are:
- Did the U.K. Miss Out on £400 Billion Worth of Oil Revenue?
- Six Reasons Why Sovereign Wealth Funds Should Not Invest or Spend at Home
- Ghana's Petroleum Exploration and Production Bill: Steps Forward, But Room for Improvement
