The Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI), Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI), World Bank and SDG Academy are pleased to announce the 3rd edition of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Natural Resources for Sustainable Development: the Fundamentals of Oil, Gas and Mining Governance. The online course stretches over 12 weeks and covers a range of topics including the challenges and opportunities that come with extractive industries, key political economy considerations, legal frameworks, tax policy, environmental issues, community rights, artisanal mining, economic linkages to the wider economy, and the management and investment of revenues for sustainable development.
Each week, students have access to around 1 hour of recorded video lectures, led by a diverse faculty of world class experts and practitioners, including Prof. Sir Paul Collier and Prof. Jeffrey Sachs. In addition to key background readings for review and engagement in online forums and quizzes to consolidate learning, students have the opportunity to ask questions to experts in weekly Q&A sessions. The course is particularly suitable for those who seek to build a solid comprehensive understanding of the field. Access to the course requires a reliable internet connection to be able to view the videos. Spanish and French subtitles and transcripts of the lectures are available.
The third facilitated edition of the MOOC will begin on 13 February 2017, with registration open now.
