Natural resources often provide fertile ground for corruption. Since a substantial number of partner countries in development cooperation are richly endowed with natural resources, these contexts pose a particular challenge for effective donor action. The risk of corruption cuts across natural resource sectors - from non-renewable resources such as oil, gas, minerals and metals, to renewable resources such as forests, fisheries and land.
