Hallo everyone! My name is Jacinta Okwaro. I am a gender and extractives specialist at UN Women Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office. I am supporting development of programmes in the UN Women country offices in Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania and Malawi. 

I am currently looking into enhancing economic rights of women in the Mining sector, including how to involve women in both decision making in large mining projects as well as how women can economically engage in both ASM and LSM sector. Specifically, I am exploring innovations that can lead to sustainable ASM that benefits both men and women equally, but at the same time protects the environment, including looking at issues of formalization of the sector and using environmental friendly techniques. 

We are piloting some projects in Kenya, Tanzania and Mali including organising women in formal associations for effective advocacy. I am excited to learn and share information with all of you and I already like what I am reading here. 

It will be great to receive the outcome document of the Stockholm meeting as some of us will not be attending. 

Many thanks and I look forward to interacting. 

Jacinta

Thank you for introducing yourself, Jacinta! We are looking forward to interacting with you and learning about the links between gender equality and environmental management in the mining sector. Feel free to start a discussion under the Discussion Forum and if you have any doubts about how to do so, you can refer to the FAQ Page.

We will also be sharing blog posts and a report of the EGP's Global Technical Workshop in Stockholm with you so stay tuned!

Hello everyone,

I am Marit Kitaw, currently working at UNDP Mozambique. I am the focal point for the Environmental Governance Program in Mozambique.

I look forward to exchanging ideas and thoughts on environmental governance and human rights in the mining sector. I look particularly forward to hearing about challenges and opportunities and to jointly try to solve them - south south and triangular cooperation.

Cheers!
