Natural resources offer a potentially transformational opportunity to support development but are ultimately finite. How do countries make the most of this limited opportunity, while at the same time navigating a complex industry and mitigating both local and long term impacts? In this four-week massive open online course, produced by the Natural Resource Governance Institute, the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment, the SDG Academy, and the World Bank, learn about efforts to sustainably manage extractive industry investments. You will come to understand the complex and interwoven aspects of natural resource governance and become part of a global movement of citizens and practitioners committed to harnessing the transformational impacts of our natural resources.
