Managing Natural Resources

Our research examines the political economy of natural resource extraction covering both renewable and extractive sectors.

We look at how political decisions for resource extraction and the use of resource revenues are made, and the role of various stakeholders in influencing these policies.

Our analyses produce contextualised and evidence based policy analysis in order to contribute to improved resource management. This includes assessment of policy options related to governance, legislation, sector regulation, taxation, and local content policies.

Our research and evaluation expertise:

  • Pre-source curse
  • Governance and corruption risks
  • Sector regulation
  • Revenue and expenditure management
