Considering Gender in Extractive Industries in Latin America
Natural resource extraction is a transformative process that affects governance, social and environmental health, and gender dynamics. Men and women are affected differently by resource extraction processes. The specific experiences and needs of women are often overlooked in decision-making, resulting in policies that ignore the critical roles that women play within their households and communities, including Indigenous Peoples. Effective gender analysis requires engaging with and assessing impacts for people from across the gender spectrum, in diverse circumstances and with a wide range of other social characteristics such as race or social class.
People often believe that countries with plentiful natural resources automatically have the means to ensure proper development of their societies. However, according to many scholars, abundant natural resources do not always benefit countries and may lead to lower or uneven economic growth, gender violence and environmental and social conflicts.
This course will help you identify and understand the complex and interwoven impacts of natural resource extraction, while also conceptualizing opportunities to mitigate harm.
