PD-NR Compendium of Practices

Welcome to the Compendium of Practices!

The Compendium of Practices is an online living tool that supports governments, extractive industry practitioners and civil society organisations in learning about how best to generate shared value from natural resource extraction projects. It follows the same format as the OECD Framework for Extractive Projects on Collaborative Strategies for In-Country Shared Value Creation, providing detailed examples on how to solve practical challenges and learn from experience.


Following the structure of the Framework, the Compendium is organised around Five Steps, covering the life-cycle of extractive projects. Each Step includes detailed guidance on actions that can be taken by government, by industry, and by government and industry together, with an emphasis on collaborative solutions to ensuring long-term, systematic and sustainable benefits from extractive projects for host-countries.


The Compendium of Practices can be navigated by clicking through the different steps of the Framework, selecting a specific tag to show relevant examples, or using the text search function. New examples are continually added as they are shared and vetted through the Policy Dialogue. Hence, we invite relevant organisations, governments, companies, and practitioners to contact us ( to contribute to the Compendium by compiling the standard template, available for download here

The Compendium of Practices is a key output of Work Stream 1 of the OECD Policy Dialogue on Natural Resource-based Development, on shared value creation and local development.
