A limited number of scholarships are available on a competitive basis to qualified applicants from Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Guinea, Indonesia, Iraq, Libya, Mexico, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nigeria, and Tanzania.

The Natural Resource Governance Institute hosted a panel event at which experts discussed the importance of data and how improved oil, gas and mining governance can drive development gains.
