    Mining, women’s participation and voice: case studies from Colombia

    Women are often adversely impacted by mining, with problems arising within families and communities related to the lack of women’s decision-making and influence on the use of water and land critical for their livelihoods and the care of their families. In addition to their influence over land and water resources, it is also noted that women’s participation in the economy and ability to participate in political and decision making processes are key factors that may decrease harms or influence access to benefits from mining, affecting social, economic and environmental outcomes.
