Integrating Gender Equality and Mine Closure: Actions for governments

This report addresses the interconnectedness of gender equality and mine closure by reviewing current issues and practices in both—and, importantly, where they intersect. It provides policy recommendations for governments to ensure that gender considerations are integrated into all aspects of mine closure. The report explores how to implement processes that assess and respond to the interests of the entire community, including the following:

  • gender-based analysis and intersectionality,
  • community engagement approaches,
  • post-mining land-use decisions,
  • transitioning mine workers and those in the service and supply sector, and
  • community, social, and economic support for closure and the post-mining transition.
