BICC is an independent, non-profit organization that deals with a wide range of global topics in the field of peace and conflict research in response to the problems posed by organized violence.

From 1996 to 2006, BICC computed the dependence on natural resources of select countries. The variable Resource Dependence was derived as normalized share of the total of all revenues from select natural resources (oil, gas, coal, diamonds, gold, copper, iron, cobalt, sugar, coffee, cacao, poppy, cotton, rubber) of the total export proceeds of a country for that year and divided into three categories.
