About the course

Countries with non-renewable resource wealth face both an opportunity and a challenge. When used well, these resources can create greater prosperity for current and future generations. Squandered, they can cause economic instability, social conflict, and lasting environmental damage. To benefit from resource wealth, citizens, private companies, and governments must make a broad range of decisions. Each requires leaders to consider complex options and trade-offs, and devise strategies to implement these policy choices.

This intensive five-day course provides the training and insight required for policy leaders in the public and private sector to work towards better management and governance of oil, gas or mineral resources for a better future. The course builds a better understanding of the interests of the public and private sectors and facilitates dialogue and mutual appreciation of respective positions between these different groups.

About the programme

Globally recognised experts and academics have developed this course to encourage public and private sector leaders from multiple countries to share their own experiences, while gaining insights and specialist knowledge about natural resource management.

The 2017 Course will look at both technical policy aspects of managing resource and the complex interplay between governments, companies and citizens.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Licensing and discovering minerals
  • Taxing companies and combating tax abuses
  • Directing state-owned enterprises
  • Protecting local societies and the environment
  • Managing revenues and investment
  • Implementing your strategy and ensuring accountability
