Memo on Management of Non-Renewable Natural Resource Revenues by Indonesia Resource-Rich District and Provinces
label Policy Brief   event 2016   local_offer Sovereign Wealth Fund   edit RegINA
Publisher: Polgov
Partners: Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI)

Despite the many ways of "benefit sharing" that local residents can benefit from the presence of extractive activities, Indonesia's natural resource revenue sharing system creates incentives for wasteful spending in resource-rich regencies. This harms Indonesia's economic growth and development. This policy brief has recommended special rules to allow natural resource-dependent regencies to save a portion of their oil, gas, or mineral revenue windfalls for future generations and smooth volatile public spending. This saving can be placed in sovereign wealth funds.
