RWI activities address the complex and diverse challenges of resource-dependency according to four operating principles:
• Continuous independent civil society oversight/monitoring.
• Timely research on the country’s extractive industry/public finance management to ensure that current/proposed policies are in the public’s best interest.
• Well-informed advocacy promoting greater openness and accountability of government’s management and distribution of extractive revenues.
• Independent technical assistance to enable governments with a genuine interest in becoming more accountable and transparent with the knowledge and tools to do so.
