This webinar looked at how governments can strengthen their policy responses to gender impacts and gaps related to mining, to improve development outcomes from the sector. The webinar shared practical approaches to addressing gender gaps in mining. We drew insights from two case studies from Colombia, in artisanal gold mining, and coal mining, of initiatives that are effective in addressing key gender issues linked to the sector, while highlighting good practices in Colombian public policy related to mining, from a gender perspective.
This webinar also introduced initial topics from a new training on gender, governance and mining that is in development, and seek feedback from participants on how the training can be refined and delivered most effectively.
