Non-renewable resource-rich countries face both an opportunity and a challenge. When properly utilized, these resources have the potential to increase present and future generations’ prosperity. They can generate economic instability, social conflict, and long-term environmental damage if they are squandered. Citizens, private companies, and governments must make a variety of decisions in order to benefit from resource richness. Each needs leaders to weigh complex options and trade-offs, as well as design strategies for putting these policy decisions into action.

Developed through a unique collaboration between NRGI and the University of Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government, this rigorous five-day course gives senior policymakers from around the world with the training and insight they need to better manage and regulate their country’s oil, gas, and mineral resources in the future. The course promotes a greater knowledge of the public and private sectors’ interests, as well as dialogue and mutual appreciation of these organizations’ distinct views.

This course was created by internationally recognized professionals and academics to encourage public and private sector leaders from many nations to share their own experiences while learning about natural resource management. The course examines both the technical policy aspects of resource management as well as the intricate interaction between governments, businesses, and citizens.

Course overview

Although the 2020 in-person programme was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, on 10 September 2020 we held a live online taster of our one-week programme, while the 2021 online event series “Managing Oil, Gas and Mining Governance in Exceptional Times,” led by Sir Paul Collier, offered interesting and highly informative lectures and discussions with leading experts.

Participant profile

This course is aimed at policy leaders in the public and private sector, alongside those in senior research and non-profit roles, who are committed to better governance in natural resources, and in a position to influence the governance of these sectors.

Participants should have at least 12 years’ experience and be in a senior leadership position or advisory role.
