For decades policy-makers have grappled with the challenge of transforming commodity wealth and state assets into sustainable economic development. This challenge is most apparent in the countries where levels of commodity wealth, and economic dependence on it, are highest. The project will examine how the gradual global shift from fossil fuels to renewables will impact asset values, and the broader economic and geopolitical implications of this shift. The project will answer specific questions such as: what role should sovereign funds play in diversifying local economies, what are the financial exposure do countries face during teh global energy transition from their sovereign wealth funds, national oil companies, and other state assets, and how should economic and investment policy change to mitigate risks.
