Do you have an idea to help governments collect revenue from their mineral resources? Would you like to present it to officials in ministries of mining and finance in developing countries?

The Future of Resource Taxation’s Call for Ideas is now open, offering creative thinkers the chance to develop fresh policy ideas fit for the coming wave of resource extraction. With critical minerals and mining set to figure prominently in the energy transition away from fossil fuels, the time is right to re-think how governments collect revenue from mineral resources.

This is a unique opportunity for creative thinkers–from non-governmental organizations, international organizations, academia, and industry–who are hereby invited to submit innovative policy ideas, ranging from incremental reforms to fundamental changes, to help resource-rich developing countries maximize revenues from mining.

Ideas that are innovative, forward looking, and responsive to the needs of developing countries will be prioritized, developed, and published in The Future of Resource Taxation: Handbook for Governments.

This project is a partnership between the African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF) and the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF), which, combined, host 87 member countries.
