Gender Equality in Artisanal Mining: Beyond Good Intentions

Event Details
Event Description

Women make up 30% of the world’s artisanal mining workforce. Even though governments, donors, NGOs, and the private sector have made pledges to promote women’s participation in the sector, many well-intentioned projects and policies fail to analyze the negative affects they may have on women at the mine site and in the community. Some initiatives ignore the choice women make to work in ASM, while others may fail to acknowledge their limited options outside the sector.

Want to ensure your efforts help advance—not regress—gender equality and the position of women in ASM? Learn how the Toolkit: Gender Impact Assessments for Projects and Policies Related to Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining can be applied to your work.
