Projects

Revenue Watch promotes transparent, accountable and effective management of natural resource wealth to help countries avoid the "resource curse." We take a comprehensive approach to improving governance and development across the entire value chain, from the organization of extractive production, revenue generation, and revenue management, and through to the expenditure processes and development outcomes in these resource rich countries.

We have played a central role in nurturing and building the capacity of the transparency and accountability movement in producing countries for the past five years, as a leader in the ongoing promotion and internationalization of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI); through support for a growing body of research on best practices in revenue management; and through local partnerships to create savings and expenditure strategies for natural resource windfalls, among many other initiatives.
