Gender-Sensitive Approaches for the Extractive Industry in Peru: Improving the Impact on Women in Poverty and Their Families
Bernie Ward with John Strongman
Gender-Sensitive Approaches to the Extractive Industry in Peru was commissioned under the World Bank’s Gender and Extractive Industries program and presents a detailed look at the importance of ensuring positive development outcomes for women in the extractive industries. This book explores the roles and opportunities for all relevant stakeholders and illustrates how the mining sector can take a few simple steps to substantially improve its impact on the disadvantaged individuals within the mining communities. The book suggests approaches that governments, companies, civil society, and communities can take to improve the impacts of extractive industries projects on women, and through these approaches facilitate positive development outcomes on the wider family and community.
