Transparency, Identity, and Governance of High-Value Natural Resources
Valuable natural resources, such as oil, gemstones, and timber, should provide opportunities for countries and peoples to escape poverty.

This project examines how information disclosure about natural resource revenue management can improve accountability in revenue spending, transforming natural resource riches in developing countries into a blessing rather than a curse.
