    Course Description

    The management of natural resources is an important function of government, and statistics are needed to support analysis of the macroeconomic impacts of natural resources and the formulation of an appropriate macroeconomic policy mix. Fluctuations in government revenues, exports, employment, and national income caused by changes in the output and prices of natural resources have major macroeconomic and fiscal implications. Sound policymaking when such risks are present requires reliable, timely, and complete coverage of relevant activity in the national accounts and analytical measures to assess the macroeconomic effects. This regional workshop aims to ensure national accounts data are compiled with comprehensive and technically sound data for natural resources. It will also support compilation of the National Accounts Template Tables specified by the Guide to Analyze Natural Resources in the National Accounts.
