Using the Natural Resource Charter as a guiding framework, this intensive six-day course will provide the training and insight required for senior policy makers to manage and govern their nation’s oil, gas or mineral resources for a better future.

Led by globally recognized experts, the course is designed to encourage senior level policy makers from different countries to share their own experiences while gaining insights and specialist knowledge about natural resource management. It will explore the many dimensions of oil, gas and mineral, including:

  • Discovery and managing public expectations
  • Tax and contracts
  • National resource companies
  • Resource revenue management and investment
  • Governance and political commitment

The course has been developed through a unique collaboration between Oxford University’s Blavatnik School of Government and the Natural Resource Governance Institute. It incorporates the latest knowledge from expert faculty, and participants will actively apply these insights during strategy planning sessions.

On completion of the course, participants will have a clear understanding of the elements of a national natural resource strategy, and the ability to lead the formation of such a strategy within their respective governments.

Since 2008, NRGI has established six regional “knowledge hubs” in partnership with academic institutions to offer training and support for civil society organizations, members of parliament and journalists to help them analyze issues linked to oil, gas and mining, and develop robust advocacy campaigns.
