This year, the NRGI conference will focus on the implications of falling commodity prices, bringing together policy makers, practitioners, academics and other leading experts (including many from developing countries) to discuss the salient policy and governance challenges and the latest analysis on these issues. The conference will provide a forum for highly interactive debate, showcasing new thinking, policy experience and emerging practice.
This year’s conference, co-hosted by the Oxford Centre for the Analysis of Resource Rich Economies (OxCarre), will cover the implications of the end of the commodities super-cycle from multiple perspectives. These will include:
The changing extractives landscape may also raise important issues for the recommendations encapsulated in the Natural Resource Charter (2nd edition), helping us address whether some of these policy options should be revisited to account for the new realities.
The conference will include keynote addresses, high-level panels and various plenary and parallel sessions on the main theme. Additionally, parts of the conference will be webcast live to allow a global audience to take part in the debate. Full details of the webcasts will be available here shortly. The hashtag for the conference is #resourcegov.
