Natural Resource Revenue Sharing

Guidance and systemization of experiences

In nearly every country, subnational governments receive public funds through a combination of direct tax collection and transfers from the national government. In most, nonrenewable natural resource revenues are apportioned no differently than other revenues. However, in more than 30 countries—most of them resource-rich—distribution of nonrenewable natural resource revenues is governed by a set of rules that are distinct from those governing distribution of general revenues. This policy paper represents a comprehensive global survey of natural resource revenue sharing regimes. One of our aims is to summarize these global experiences and make them accessible to policymakers, academics and public finance, resource governance and conflict experts.
