2023 Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains

How to safeguard gender justice in the energy transition?

Apr 26, 2023 | 6:30 AM - 8:00 AM

Partner session - Room CC16


Organised by: Women’s Rights and Mining with participation of ActionAid and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs Scarce minerals and metals are needed to realize our renewable energy ambitions. We raise some questions on how this can happen in an inclusive and fair manner, without leaving anyone behind. Certain negative effects of mining have disproportionately been affecting women, through exclusion from jobs, sexual harassment, or dealing with water, land, and air pollution caused by mining. In this interactive panel, we discuss what is needed to realize a gender-just energy transition.
