Toolkit: Gender Impact Assessments for Projects and Policies Related to Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining
Languages available: English
By using this toolkit, teams behind projects and policies designed to improve experiences and outcomes in the ASM sector will be supported in predicting how gender relations will be affected, then determining how to minimize the potentially negative impacts. The toolkit offers 14 strategic tools, including a Gender Impact Matrix and Gender Equality Continuum, and details seven key steps — from data collection to power mapping — to achieving a comprehensive Gender Impact Assessment for ASM-related initiatives. The full spectrum of the GIA Toolkit’s application includes ASM-related programs, processes, policies, legislation, laws, interventions, and regulations. Potential users would include civil society, philanthropists, government departments/agencies, and the private sector.
