NRGI Program Note: Supporting the Energy Transition in Oil- and Mineral-rich Countries

This program note explains NRGI's understanding of the challenges that the global move toward renewable energy presents to resource-rich countries, and previews related future programming.

The energy transition—the shift from the use of fossil fuels to cleaner energy in order to avoid climate-related disaster—is imperiled by three trends in resource-rich countries:




Resource-rich countries have opportunities to break cycles of poor decision-making and build more resilient economies. NRGI will support resource-rich countries to manage the risks of dependence on oil, gas and minerals; navigate domestic energy transitions; and improve the governance of critical minerals.
