Governance Assessment Profile
The Natural Resource Governance Institute's Resource Governance Index
The Natural Resource Governance Institute's Resource Governance Index (RGI 2013) measures the standard of governance in the oil, mining, and gas industries for 58 countries. The score is based on data collected by a 173-question survey, focused on the institutional and legal settings, reporting practices, safeguards and quality controls, and enabling environments. The next version of the RGI will be launched in 2017. The information below was compiled from responses to AidData’s 2016 GDA Snap Poll, which asked public, private and civil society leaders to answer 11 questions about whether, when, and why they use governance data in their work. A total of 45 participants to the snap poll indicated familiarity with the RGI 2013.
