Dear Colleagues,

The Natural Resource Charter invites contributions from all stakeholders as part of its annual consultation and revision process.

The year of 2010 saw a continuation of the Charter's global consultation process, drawing on a wide range of expertise and stakeholders views and culminating in the annual technical workshop, held in Oxford in September 16th and 17th.

Throughout 2010 the Charter had gathered feedback from a variety of sources including industry, civil society organisations, academics and technical experts, as well as concerned citizens of resource-rich countries. Furthermore, the technical workshop welcomed many different viewpoints, across these various stakeholders, to scrutinise, challenge, revise and update the Charter text.
