Promising Practices in Gender and Extractives
Thank you to everyone who attended Resource Equity’s event on best practices for incorporating gender into extractives projects, held on November 12th, 2019 at the Ford Foundation.
The discussion included a presentation and discussion from panelists and Resource Equity in empowering and including women in investments in extractive resources, including insights from four recent case studies in Côte d’Ivoire, Papua New Guinea, Peru, and Uganda.
The panelists provided strong responses on the case studies and shared insights on enabling conditions, specific measures that were effective in including women and in protecting their rights and livelihoods, and the many challenges that remain. All the participants engaged in frank and illuminating discussions, adding more detail and dimensions to the evolving list of issues and barriers. Strong ideas on solutions were offered by all.
The recording of the day is available here.
We will be updating this page with resources. A few links of interest are:

Below are the agenda from the day, some summary thoughts from the participants on enabling conditions for good and best practices around gender and extractives, and the case study synthesis report. We will be adding the individual case studies in the next week.
