Short Course in Natural Resource Management. 8-12 September 2014, University of Oxford

An executive-level, invitation-only short course for senior government officials to examine the challenges of natural resource management and develop the strategies required to transform resources into sustained prosperity, using the Natural Resource Charter framework. Please note this course is invitation only.

Designed for the most senior policy makers in government, this intensive six-day course provided a complete overview of the policy decisions that governments face in the management of their extractive resources. Instruction was led by world experts who shared their knowledge and insights on the core challenges of resource management, including:

  • Discovery and managing expectations
  • Tax and contracts
  • National resource companies
  • Resource revenue management and investment
  • Governance and political commitment


The course was developed through a special partnership between the University of Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government and the Natural Resource Charter. It incorporated the latest cutting-edge research from expert faculty, as well as practical skills-based sessions on issues such as project delivery, getting the most out of national companies and team management. Participants actively applied these insights during strategy planning sessions in which the key skills necessary to make transformational decisions was shared. The aim  of the course was for participants to gain a clear understanding of the necessary elements of a national natural resource strategy, and the ability to lead the formation of such a strategy within their respective governments.
