Do you need to make a stronger case for amplifying women’s voices in mining governance? Do you want to become more skilled at evaluating the impact of mining projects on communities, with a particular emphasis on women? Are you looking for recommendations on eliminating gender-based violence in mining-affected communities? Are you interested in promoting or increasing investment in gender equality in mining governance, and not sure where to start?
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Environmental Governance Programme (EGP), and the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) are offering a FREE Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) on Gender and Mining Governance.
