The Natural Resource Governance Institute will host a panel event at which experts will discuss the importance of data and how improved oil, gas and mining governance could drive development gains.
The event will feature a variety of perspectives on the opportunities created by (and limitations of) new and existing data about extractive industries for improved governance and for promoting transformative economic development. Specifically, panelists are likely to touch upon the importance of contract disclosure and monitoring, links to revenues and taxes paid, and how these contribute to improved understanding of public finances and money available for public investments. There will also be wider discussion of how financial data is a complement to, and not a substitute for, better accountability mechanisms and improved economic management in resource-rich countries.
