This Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) policy paper represents a comprehensive global survey of natural resource revenue sharing regimes. One of our aims is to summarize these global experiences and make them accessible to policymakers, academics and public finance, resource governance and conflict experts.
Further, this paper provides policymakers with key recommendations to guide the establishment of technically and economically sound natural resource revenue sharing systems (or to reform existing ones), while recognizing that revenue sharing systems are the result of political processes. It is our hope that the case studies, lessons and principles contained in this report will help steer policymakers and negotiators through complex decision making processes, and contribute to the establishment of revenue sharing regimes that help achieve sustainable development and national accord.
