Best practices for succession planning in resource based economies

Description 

Are there examples of best practices in national/provincial succession planning for resource based economies? How will the province transition from an economy based largely on non-renewable resources to a new economy? Can this be a smooth transition, aided by a strategic plan? Have others created strategic plans for the future that we could look to?
