About The Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI)
Our independent, non-profit organization provides policy advice and advocacy infused with lessons learned in the field and with insights developed through rigorous research. We share our knowledge and experience freely with policymakers, accountability actors, and the global campaign for improved international norms. We are particularly well placed to convene reform-oriented dialogue and to engage in constructive policy advocacy.
We are presently deepening our efforts in a select number of priority countries, focusing on critical aspects of the natural resource decision chain, based on country needs and demand. Evaluations of our work show that we have greater impact if we engage with diverse change agents across the decision chain in fewer countries, rather than with limited interventions across many countries. We are concentrating our financial and human resources more strategically in high-impact programs in particular countries, and we also engage in global issues related to governance in natural resources.
