IGF Case Study: Skills Building for Women in Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining
Women play a crucial role in artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM). While their challenges in the sector have been studied extensively, increased effort is needed to create a more widespread understanding of their importance to ASM.
This case study focuses on women and ASM, drawn from examples from Mongolia, Zambia and Zimbabwe, highlighting how to empower women’s meaningful participation in the sector through the building of skills and institutional capacities.
The piece is part of our series on women in ASM, including our report entitled Women in Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining: Challenges and Opportunities for Greater Participation and our case study Women in Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining: Interventions for Greater Participation.
