Supporting high-impact stories about natural resource extraction

Strong journalism is essential in promoting understanding and engagement by the public and policymakers about governance issues in oil, gas and mining. But reporting in this field is challenging. “Covering Extractives” is a practical guide produced by the Natural Resource Governance Institute to help journalists in resource-rich countries identify, analyze and report on issues in the extractive industries. It offers tools for building convincing stories, research leads, and inspiration from experienced reporters.

gas and mining industries in resource-rich countries, NRGI has complemented selected blog posts with media relevant
resources such as good examples of existing coverage, suggested story angles and data sources.
