Consultancy: Morocco Oil, Gas and Mining Researcher, Morocco

Consultancy: Morocco Oil, Gas and Mining Researcher, Morocco Summary NRGI seeks to hire an experienced researcher to answer a questionnaire provided by NRGI for Morocco with respect to the oil and gas sector (licensing sub-component) and mining sector for the 2021 Resource Governance Index project. The researcher's role will involve researching publicly available information on the transparency and accountability of the extractives sector, including government reporting and disclosure practices and information about Morocco's legal framework. About NRGI and the Resource Governance Index (RGI) Countries that are rich in oil, gas, and minerals face a critical development challenge. When used well, these resources can create greater prosperity for current and future generations; used poorly, or squandered, they can cause economic instability, social conflict, and lasting environmental damage. NRGI is a non-governmental organization dedicated to helping communities and nations benefit from their countries' endowments of oil, gas, and minerals. For more information about NRGI, please refer to this short introduction and our 2020-2025 Strategy. NRGI produces the Resource Governance Index (RGI), a tool for measuring the quality of governance in the oil, gas and mining sectors across a range of countries with considerable oil, gas and/or mineral reserves. The RGI is based on the premise that good governance of natural resources is necessary for the successful development of countries with abundant oil, gas and minerals. It provides a diagnostic tool to help identify good practices as well as shortcomings in governance. The most recent edition of the index is the 2017 Resource Governance Index; you can learn more about the results at https://ift.tt/2xVrgbx. Details The researcher will be responsible for answering a detailed questionnaire provided by NRGI for Morocco with respect to the mining sector and the oil and gas sector (licensing sub-component). In order to complete the RGI questionnaire, the researcher will consult publicly available official documents. The researcher will provide justifications and supporting documents as evidence for their responses to the questionnaire. Once the researcher has completed the questionnaire, peer reviewers will review them for accuracy and consistency. Following peer review, the researcher will be asked to follow-up on specific questions, to provide further evidence or clarifications in response to concerns following the review.
