This paper focuses on women’s roles in Guyana's ASGM sector, with the intention of providing comprehensive findings that can be used to make the sector more gender-inclusive and environmentally and socially sustainable.
This joint guidance has been developed to support gender mainstreaming in the development of artisanal and small-scale gold mining National Action Plans (NAPs) in line with Annex C of the Minamata Convention on Mercury, as well as for the development of National Implementation Plans (NIPs) for the management of persistent organic pollutants in line with the Stockholm Convention. The document provides guidance on incorporating gender dimensions throughout the process and into strategic content of both NAPs and NIPs. The Annexes present detailed considerations and tools relevant for both and specific to NAPs and NIPs
The objective of this report is to summarize gender dynamics in the artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) sector and their social and economic implications on women miners in Mongolia. The report concludes that, while some barriers exist, the ASGM sector offers viable livelihoods options for women and identifies encouraging opportunities for women to serve as agents of change for formalization and better mining practices.
This guide is intended to share some of the learnings and best practices in the hope that this will further encourage greater participation and engagement with women at gold mining operations and in the communities that support these operations.
