Countries with non-renewable resource wealth face both an opportunity and a challenge. When used well, these resources can create greater prosperity for current and future generations. Squandered, they can cause economic instability, social conflict, and lasting environmental damage. To benefit from resource wealth, citizens, private companies, and governments must make a broad range of decisions. Each requires leaders to consider complex options and trade-offs, and devise strategies to implement these policy choices.
This intensive five-day course provides the training and insight required for policy leaders in the public and private sector to work towards better management and governance of oil, gas or mineral resources for a better future. The course builds a better understanding of the interests of the public and private sectors and facilitates dialogue and mutual appreciation of respective positions between these different groups.
Globally recognised experts and academics have developed this course to encourage public and private sector leaders from multiple countries to share their own experiences, while gaining insights and specialist knowledge about natural resource management.
The course looks at both technical policy aspects of managing resource and the complex interplay between governments, companies and citizens.

Participants should have at least 12 years’ experience and be in a senior leadership position or advisory role.
We strongly encourage women to apply, with a number of bursary and scholarship opportunities currently available to help support current and rising female leaders in the natural resource sector.
Prospective participants include:
Ministers, chiefs of staff, heads of extractives state-owned enterprises, commissioners, heads of agencies, departments and other public bodies involved in the management of oil, gas and mining and the revenues they generate as well as their deputies and advisors
Executives, directors, chiefs and heads at oil, gas and mining companies, at headquarters or country office levels, as well as their deputies and advisors

A limited number of scholarships will be offered on a competitive basis to public sector applicants from select resource-rich countries: Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Mexico, Myanmar, Tunisia and Uganda. In exceptional cases, scholarship applications from outstanding candidates from other countries may also be considered. These can partially or fully cover tuition and, in select cases, may assist with travel. A bursary application must be completed by the closing date to be eligible for these awards.
This year we are also offering additional bursaries for childcare costs associated with attendance. This is intended to enable participants to attend who otherwise might not be able to because of childcare needs. Requests will be assessed on a case-by-case basis, dependent on need.
