Revenue Watch Index
The Revenue Watch Index is a pioneering measurement of government disclosure in the management of oil, gas, and minerals. It ranks transparency in 41 countries among the world's top producers of petroleum, gold, copper, and diamonds.
The index, created by the Revenue Watch Institute in partnership with Transparency International, is an assessment and comparison of information published by governments about revenues, contract terms, and other key data. It is an important tool for elected officials, policymakers, civil society, and media seeking increased public disclosure about natural resource management and greater government accountability.
