The Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) helps people to realize the benefits of their countries’ endowments of oil, gas and minerals. They do this through technical advice, advocacy, applied research, policy analysis, and capacity development. They work with innovative agents of change within government ministries, civil society, the media, legislatures, the private sector, and international institutions to promote accountable and effective governance in the extractive industries. Strategic plan Building on experience and embracing change, the Natural Resource Governance Institute has embarked upon a bold and ambitious new strategy. In 2013, the Revenue Watch Institute and the Natural Resource Charter combined their expertise to form NRGI to better contribute to a major challenge of our time: improving the governance of natural resources to promote sustainable and inclusive development. Countries must improve accountability and the management of their oil, gas and mining resources in order for all people in a resource-rich country to benefit from the subsoil wealth. Their goal is to help countries manage their natural resources for the public good by leveraging their expertise working with civil society, parliaments, governments, the private sector, media and other partners. Country prioritization A key element of NRGI’s 2015-2019 strategy was a decision to focus the organization’s efforts in a smaller number of “priority” countries. This decision was taken on the basis of an evaluation of NRGI’s work and a hypothesis that utilizing a range of tools, working with the stakeholders across the decision chain would have the greatest impact at the country level. This then presented the challenge of selecting what those priority countries should be.
