Developed through a unique collaboration between the University of Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government and the Natural Resource Governance Institute, this intensive six-day course will provide the training and insight required for senior policy makers from around the world to manage and govern their nation’s oil, gas or mineral resources for a better future.

Overview of the course:

Led by globally recognized experts, and using the Natural Resource Charter as a guiding framework, 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

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.
