Eighth plenary meeting of the policy dialogue on natural resource-based development

Jointly organised by the OECD Development Centre and the G7 CONNEX Initiative

Building collective knowledge for actionable policies

The EITI is participating in this event, notably in session 5A.

About the policy dialogue

The Policy Dialogue on Natural Resource-based Development is a multi-year intergovernmental process of knowledge sharing and peer learning among OECD and Partner natural resource producing countries on how to harness natural resources for structural transformation and more inclusive and broad-based development.  Compared to other fora, the added value of the Policy Dialogue on Natural Resource-based Development lies in its unique structure designed to facilitate the generation, systematisation and access to tacit and newly developed collective knowledge through collaborative OECD and non-OECD evidence-based policy analysis.

The Policy Dialogue focuses on four Work Streams: (i) Shared Value Creation and Local Development; (ii) Revenue Spending and Natural Resource Funds; (iii) Getting Better Deals and (iv) Domestic Resource Mobilisation (tackling BEPS and corruption).

The Policy Dialogue is a cross-directorate OECD initiative, led by the Development Centre and involving relevant Directorates that can contribute or lead in specific policy domains, namely, the Centre for Tax Policy and Administration (CTPA), Development Cooperation (DCD), Environment (ENV), Financial and Enterprise Affairs (DAF), Global Relations Secretariat (GRS), Legal Directorate (LEG), Public Governance and Territorial Development (GOV), and Trade and Agriculture (TAD). The Policy Dialogue is a pilot of the Knowledge Sharing Alliance (KSA) initiative.

Objectives, structure, format of the event 

This two-day meeting will bring together representatives of OECD and non-OECD governments, extractive industries, civil society and think tanks and will afford opportunities to advance the work under the different Streams of Work, according to the roadmap agreed upon at the Seventh Meeting of the Policy Dialogue on 30 November – 1 December 2016.

The first day (15 June), which will have multiparty participation (governments, industry, civil society and think tanks), will be devoted to the CONNEX Negotiation Support Forum, a joint initiative of the OECD Policy Dialogue and the G7 CONNEX Initiative, undertaken as part of Work Stream 3 - Getting Better Deals.

The second day (16 June), also with multiparty participation, will feature sessions to advance work under Work Streams 1 (Shared Value Creation and Local Development), 2 (Natural resource Funds and Revenue Spending), and 4 (Domestic Resource Mobilisation: tackling BEPS and corruption).
