The Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) helps people to realize the benefits of their countries’ endowments of oil, gas and minerals. We do this through technical advice, advocacy, applied research, policy analysis, and capacity development. We work with innovative agents of change within government ministries, civil society, the media, legislatures, the private sector, and international institutions to promote accountable and effective governance in the extractive industries. For more information, please see www.resourcegovernance.org.
Funded by philanthropic organizations and national governments, we are headquartered in New York City with further offices in Accra, Beirut, Jakarta, Lima and London, and staff presence in Bolivia, Cameroon, DRC, Guinea, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nigeria, Uganda, Tanzania and Tunisia.
NRGI’s Capacity Development program seeks to equip all stakeholders with the extractive-specific knowledge and skills to be able to play their role in fostering good natural resource governance. Capacity development officers help regional offices and technical staff expand and systematize approaches to building capacity through advising on program design, developing stakeholder specific curriculum, and collating experiences of best practice. The Capacity Development Officer: Learning Specialist will support the development and monitoring of new and existing online and in person curriculum.
NRGI is able to draw on technical and contextual expertise of its staff by engaging nearly all program and regional staff in capacity building work. These programs range from global training programs for senior government officials to in-country mentoring for civil society groups. Amid this range of work, NRGI seeks to ensure high-quality capacity development interventions that build on adult learning good practice and demonstrated programming effectiveness. This role will seek to systematically build staff capacity to develop and deploy effective curricula and, if so requested at a later stage, contribute to furthering our online course offerings.
