Oil, Gas and Mining for Development

The Natural Resource Charter Benchmarking Framework is a tool for benchmarking a country’s management of oil, gas and minerals against global best practices. Created in response to government and civil society demand for a practical way to measure resource governance, it is the product of five years of expert input and testing in more than 15 country projects.

Mexico’s National Hydrocarbons Commission has faced myriad challenges and opportunities since its first open licensing rounds in 2015. What can an independent regulatory agency achieve in a country that just opened its petroleum industry to private investments? Join the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and NRGI in Washington, D.C., on 24 January for a discussion with experts on global resource transparency.

Registration is now open for Natural Resources for Sustainable Development: The Fundamentals of Oil, Gas, and Mining Governance, a joint course by NRGI, the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment and the World Bank. It gives students an understanding of the key challenges and opportunities that come with managing extractive industry investments for sustainable development.
