What is the NNRC?

The NNRC is a Nigerian initiative, led by an esteemed panel of experts on natural resource governance that convenes on a biannual basis to analyse the governance issues relating to petroleum in the country. The NNRC is supported by the Natural Resource Governance Institute, a non-profit policy institute that promotes the effective, transparent and accountable management of oil, gas and mineral resources for the public good. For the 2014 edition, the NNRC entered into a partnership with the Lagos-based think-tank, the Centre for Public Policy Alternatives, to carry out much of the assessment’s research.

In 2014 the Nigeria Natural Resource Charter (NNRC) has carried out its second assessment of the governance of Nigeria’s petroleum wealth. Using the Natural Resource Charter (NRC) framework, a tool developed by diverse set of internationally renowned experts on natural resource management, the latest benchmarking report systematically catalogues critical aspects of the governance of petroleum wealth in Nigeria and identifies crucial changes that have taken place since 2012, when the first assessment was completed.
