Revenue Watch Index 2010

Revenue Watch Index is a pioneering measurement of government disclosure in the management of oil, gas and minerals, ranking transparency practices in 41 countries among the world's top producers of petroleum, gold, copper and diamonds. Created in partnership with Transparency International, the index is an assessment and comparison of information published by governments about revenues, contract terms and other key data. It looks to be an important tool all of us seeking increased public disclosure about natural resource management, and greater government accountability. Unsurprising, Zambia scores poorly - atleast we are better than Mongolia and Sudan. You can read the whole report here.
