sharing in governance of extractive industries
EX4DEV18 MINING WORKSHOP DEMONSTRATES THE IMPORTANCE OF COLLABORATION AND USE OF DATA FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
A photography competition may seem trivial, but one of the most effective ways to challenge false perspectives of women working in mining is to show them actively engaged onsite and in a variety of roles.
This was the message of Deborah Craig, a Board Director of International Women in Mining when she highlighted the organisations’ recent outreach and mentorship work as well as the need for data disaggregated by gender during Ex4Dev18 last week.
Designed to foster relationships between academia and industry and identify practical steps to harness the extractive industries for socio-economic development in sub-Saharan Africa, Ex4Dev is an annual interdisciplinary workshop implemented by a volunteer team of PhD researchers.
The full summary of the workshop can be found on the Ex4Dev18 website
In the next month, the details of a planned special section in the Extractive Industries and Society journal will also be released. The aim of the special section is to provide a range of short (2,000-3,000 word) viewpoints to stir conversation, debate, and foster collaboration.
For any questions or interest in becoming involved in sponsoring and organising a repeat event in 2019, please get in touch with the workshop committee: firstname.lastname@example.org and/or visit the website: https://ex4dev.com/
