Norway is a often used as a shining example of good natural resource management. First in a series of short case studies, “A comprehensive resource development strategy: Norway’s path to inclusive and sustainable development” charts the creation of a comprehensive policy framework that helped Norway resist many of the problems facing resource-rich countries, and establish the country as one of the most successful economies in the world. The case study highlights many of the issues contained in Precept 1 of the Natural Resource Charter. In particular, it highlights some of the factors already present in the country that ensured the success of the policy framework, but cautions that such factors may not be easily replicated in other countries. The case also suggests that the path to sustainable development is not yet complete, and further structural changes may be necessary.
