Practices of Extractivism and its Impact on Women’s Rights in Georgia
Women’s Fund in Georgia (WFG), together with two sister funds - Women’s Fund in Mongolia - MONES and Women’s Fund in Nepal - TEWA is implementing a project that aims to create knowledge in three countries - Mongolia, Nepal, and Georgia around the mining and extraction practices, as well as its influence on women’s rights. The project will also look at how the topics are reflected in the feminist agenda and what can be done.
Women’s funds strive to create a sustainable and responsible extractives sector that contributes to inclusive and sustainable development with minimal harm for vulnerable groups (women, queer persons, the younger generation, the elderly, the disabled, and those with less access to resources) and the planet. One of the main challenges globally is that countries and other stakeholders are not implementing policies, practices, and tools contributing to a sustainable and responsible extractives sector.
Promoting environmental justice, science-policy, finance, economic and digital transformation, as well as just transitions to address climate, pollution, waste, and biodiversity loss caused by the extractives sector while engaging with policymakers, industries, civil society, and the finance sector is key. But to achieve this, it is crucial to have strong evidence of how locally the states organize around the issue and what the consequences are for the most marginalized and vulnerable groups, such as women, queer persons, younger girls, elderly women, women with disabilities, ethnic and religious minorities, etc.
