Expert Group Meeting on the use of non-renewable resource revenues for sustainable local development: challenges and opportunities for developing countries
21 Sep 2007
The meeting was intended as a first step towards a broader comprehension of the efficiency and effectiveness of use of natural resource revenues at the local level for sustainable development and growth. It was hoped that the confrontation of experiences from countries at different levels of development and operating within different institutional models of local development will shed light on the constraints that limit and conditions which favor the effective and equitable use of natural resource revenues at the local level.
The meeting agenda was built to bring together the perspectives of various countries and various stakeholders, including field researchers and non-governmental organizations working on issues germane to the conference topic.
