This systematic review sought to understand the efficacy of natural resource funds (NRFs) as an intervention to manage revenues from mineral resources in low- and middle-income countries experiencing politically fragile circumstances. The following 3 questions were examined through the review:
- How are NRFs used to manage resource revenue in resource-rich countries?
- What has been the impact of existing NRFs?
- How can NRFs be made more effective, especially in low- and middle-income countries experiencing politically fragile conditions?
This report was commissioned under the Department for International Development’s DFID Systematic Review Programme for South Asia.
