The management and utilization of Natural Resources should promote development that makes people prosperous, improves the economy, and alleviates poverty. More than a decade of decentralization took place in Indonesia, followed by fiscal decentralization for natural resource-rich regions, namely areas producing oil, natural gas, minerals, coal, forests, and other natural resources.

The Natural Resources Revenue Sharing Fund Scheme is one of the instruments that provide more space for fiscal capacity for resource-rich regions but has not yet optimally promoted Natural Resources revenues to be used effectively in the regions. Poverty and disparities are still widely found in areas where extractive industries operate, even in areas surrounding the mine (ring one).

This case study portrays how the Natural Resources Revenue Sharing Fund is used in five oil and gas producing districts, namely North Aceh, Indragiri Hulu, Kutai Kartanegara, Bojonegoro, and West Sumbawa.
