The Danish Institute for Human Rights produced this publication for practitioners working in and with extractive industries on how a gender-responsive approach can be embedded in project planning and implementation
The purpose of this report is to contribute to learning on key challenges, as well as good practice opportunities for practitioners working in and with the extractive industries, on how a gender-responsive approach can be embedded in project planning and implementation. In particular, the report explores how strengthened engagement with women can act as a key enabler for human rights due diligence.
The report focuses on six select dimensions of human rights due diligence in extractive industries projects:
- Community relations
- Land acquisition and resettlement
- Local content
- Grievance resolution
- Strategic social investment.
For each topic, a short overview of key gender issues is provided, as well as suggestions for addressing challenges and enhancing gender-responsive due diligence in practice.
