A gender responsive value chain

Publish What You Pay created a value chain for how we can instill transparency and accountability throughout the extractive process, from discovery of natural resources to wrapping up the project. You can view our chain here.

But did our value chain take enough into account gender issues? At a workshop with UN women last March we brainstormed a value chain that takes into account how women are differently affected by the extractive sector. The result is below.

We’d like to work on this chain a bit more, which is why we’ve organised an e-discussion to take place in the comments section below, next Thursday 18th July at 9:00 am BST to chat about anything we might have missed. We’ve got PWYP members from Africa to Asia-Pacific participating, as well as staff from UN Women.

Join us and tell us what you think!  

IMG_0217In Dar Es Salaam, PWYP members and UN Women staff discuss the Chain for Change

1)      What are our natural resources?

Women, youth and men need full information on their country’s natural resources in order to make informed decisions on whether and how these should be extracted.  Geological surveys and other information should be shared with a special attention on making sure women are reached. Communication methods should take into account literacy levels and women’s access to information.

 

2)      What is the natural resource framework?

Influencing natural resource legal frameworks ensures that transparency, accountability and gender sensitivity are included in the natural resource management process from the start.  Existing policy frameworks should be gender responsive and harmonised with national gender policies, with cross fertilisation between ministries (i.e mines and gender). Policy frameworks should adhere to international human rights frameworks (Kampala convention for IDPs, CEDAW, the Maputo Protocol, African Charter on Human Rights etc…) and relevant business/investor frameworks (Ruggie, Equator) as well as address land issues. We also need regulation of the artisanal and small-scale mining sector – many women work in this field but it remains unregulated.

 

asm_diamonds_ghana_bonsa23)      To extract or not to extract?

Impact assessments (social and environmental) and Free Prior and Informed Consent consultations should be gender responsive in their questions and indicators. They should be carried out in a transparent and independent manner, ensuring a guaranteed level of free and full participation of women.

In cases where there are national debates before extractive decisions, the involvement of women parliamentarians should be especially encouraged.

4)      How to ensure the best possible deal?

Licenses and contracts must be awarded in a transparent manner, with public and competitive bidding and contracts available to all women, men and youth .  Women (from all sectors) must have a seat at the negotiating table  Compensation should be conceived of in terms of loss of livelihood rather than value (e.g loss of farming rather than loss of land/tree) and there should be training and support for women about to engage in new income generating activities .

5)      How to monitor the project?

Projects need to be monitored to ensure that any change in circumstance or contractual breach can be rectified. Abuses arising from extraction should be corrected and preventative measures in place. Women must be included in trainings on contract monitoring (and their participation encouraged) and the monitoring itself should have gender responsive indicators. Areas to monitor include the impact of migration patterns on gender and the impact of extractive projects on environment and sexual health, as well as the increased risk of sexual violence. Prevention measures should be put into place and a clear access to justice established.

 8_edit6)      What payments are companies making?

Companies must publish what they pay so that women, men and youth can find out how much their country receives for natural resources and hold their government to account. Women organisations should be involved and trained in understanding project level data. In the campaigns disseminating data information, civil society must ensure that women are being effectively reached.

7)      Did the money reach the state coffers?

To ensure that money is not siphoned off or ‘lost’, governments need to be transparent and report their natural resource revenues. This includes whether the revenues were destined to a certain level of government (i.e 15 % of revenues of a project are allocated to the extractive community) or to a special fund, such as one directed towards to empowerment of women

8)      How should the money be spent?

Money should be allocated transparently and equitably. There should be gender transparency, gender responsive budgeting (fair distribution within development priorities), and more women involved in budget prioritisation. Better knowledge is important here, as is disaggregated data and analysis on expenditure and allocation of budgets.

 

waitingformanna9)      Did the money get there?

Once revenue is allocated, civil society can monitor whether the money reached its agreed destination and advocate for rectification if the money goes missing en route.

 

10)   Was it worth it?

There should be an independent impact assessment made to evaluate whether the money generatd was correctly spent and contributed to the development and the improvement of the lives of all women, men and youth. To this end, impact assessments should examine indicators that are gender responsive and carried out by a gender balanced number of professionalswho consult a guaranteed percentage of women. Evaluations could be made on the specific impact a certain budget activity had on the lives of women, and whether this was the most effective activity to have prioritised.

 11)   Always Assess

There should be regular assessments by all parties to ensure that longer-term frameworks are correct and still relevant. This is a good opportunity to rectify old frameworks so that they incorporate the gender dimension.

  
712)   When the dust settles

It is important to consider how an extractive project – and the economy that sprang around it – is effectively dismantled and decommissioned. Gender responsive decommissioning plans should take into account issues including land (who does it go back to once it has been compensated for?) and the livelihoods of women and men – many income generating activities for women will disappear as the mine shuts down.

Underlying principles

Women’s participation should be increased at every level and in every activity along the value chain.

The institutions governing natural resources and the extractive sector should be developed to become gender responsive.

Women organisations should be involved at every level of the chain.

  1. apowell2013 says:

    Hi everyone,

    Alice Powell from the PWYP Secretariat here, I’m very pleased to welcome you to our very first e-chat!

    Just a few basic points before we get started: please could you tell us a little bit about who you are and who you work for in your opening comment?

    Also, remember that you might have to refresh your browser every once in a while to see the new comments appear.

    The aim? We’d like to get inputs from a wide range of people before finalising this chain, to ensure that the end result is as comprehensive and strong as possible. That’s why we’re so keen to hear your thoughts.

    The structure? We like to think of it as organised chaos. Feel free to start a new thread (by replying to the blog as a whole) or continue a conversation with someone (by replying to their specific comment).

    Now that the comments are open, feel free to dive right in! We’d love to hear what you think about any aspect of the chain, but if you’re stuck on where to start, I’m going to post a few questions down.

    To start off with a general one: do you think we have missed anything out from our chain?

    Feel free to answer those or simply tell us what you think!

    If you have any questions at any point, you can contact me via email apowell@publishwhatyoupay.org or on skype : pwyp.alicepowell

    Here’s to a fantastic conversation!

    • Christian says:

      Hi everyone,
      This is Christian, UN Women Eastern and Southern Africa Regional office communications focal point. I have just joined the chat!

  2. Sophie says:

    Hi everyone,
    This is Sophie from PWYP. Looking forward to the conversation!

  3. Mita says:

    Hi Alice,
    I am Dyah Paramita from ICEL (PWYP Indonesia member). I want to contribute my thoughts relating to women’s reproduction health vs environmental impacts from mining activities.

    Pollution exposures from mining activities caused complicated impact to women’s reproduction system and health. The risks is not only influence the women themselves but also fetal development, breast milk contamination, and etsrogen disruption. Heavy metals accumulate in the body. Health impact assessment is urgently needed to be included in EIA or being very specifically address in the study prior, during and after the mining is conducted.

    We have known that mercury contamination (e.g. from ASGM) leads problem to fetal development, coal exposures risking women to have autism baby, gas flaring releases harmful substances but yet we don’t have good and systematic record on this.

    There is a need for a greater awareness and vigilance of the effect of environmental pollution from mining on women’s reproductive health. Women should be well informed regarding the heatlh risks from the mining activities and how to prevent/handle them. Access to this information is important for women towards meaningful participation at every level along the value chain.

    Thank you!

  4. Alan Wolfe says:

    Hi all,
    Alan Wolfe from Transparency International Australia. We participate in PWYP Aus. and are also working towards a specialised programme on Mining & Corruption. While in the very nascent stages we see great potential in the intersection between the work on Gender & Corruption and this work on gender & extractives. I didn’t identify anything major missing from the value chain but commend the focus on pre-extraction; many of the value chains we’ve contemplated assumed that the decision to extract has already been made.

    • Marinke says:

      Morning Alan or should I say good evening? Has there been a lot of work on gender and corruption? I would love to find out more; I have my own theory on women and corruption but just based on my own experiences (particularly in microfinance) is that women tend to be less corrupt but if they are they do it on a large scale….. I am curious if TI has similar experiences and if there is a gender component in hte Corruption Perception Index….

      • Alan Wolfe says:

        It’s a lovely afternoon here Marinke. Your experiences seem to be aligned with the research Marinke. But complicating factors arise when whole systems are corrupt and the ‘typical’ female values of family orientation etc. interact with an entirely corrupted system.

      • Christina Hill says:

        I am aware of a report on women and corruption but the detals of who wrote it escape me right know – when I do remember I’ll send detais to the email list!

    • apowell2013 says:

      Thanks Alan! In terms of the decision to extract, one of the things we’ve highlighted is the importance of creating a space for women at the table. Do you have any thoughts on how this can be done? Have you ever seen a project where women have had a strong say in whether (or how) extraction occurs?

  5. Marinke says:

    Thanks Alice Marinke here from the PWYP Secretariat. The one thing we overlooked during hte development of this Chain for Change is the aspect of the artisanal and small scale mining, the informal sector. This is perhaps because of its informal element but truth be told this is the sector where most women and youth work and try to make a living and gender impact may be biggest. I know there are attempts to formalise the sector more in Tanzania and Indonesia for example but we should not overlook the gender components here……

    • Christina Hill says:

      It is great to see the interest in artisnal and SSM in our discussion so far. Can I suggest that the relevant part of the value chain make the point that this is a big issue for women because of health and safety concerns for workers, and because pollution from unregulated mining has a direct impact on women because of their reponsibilities for growing food and water collection – both of whcih are imposible if waterway and land are badly polluted, especially by toxic chemicals

    • Faith Nwadishi says:

      There are plans in nigeria to formalize the ASM sector and already included in the law is that any one seeking a license must sign a 5year community development agreement at this stage we can push for women’s inclusion around the table at negotiations. But the challenge will be the capacity that the women will bring on the table for such meetings

      • apowell2013 says:

        Hi Faith,

        Thanks for your comment! Women’s involvement at the table is really crucial. Do you have any ideas about how we could increase women’s involvement in the process?

        Cordaid and others have done some work on training communities in negotiation of community development agreements. I wonder if they have a gender component to their trainings?

  6. Alan Wolfe says:

    That’s a really good point Dyah, perhaps there is good scope to align with the work coming out of IIED on ASM? http://www.iied.org/iied-shines-light-small-scale-mining

  7. Hello! This is Stephanie Raison, communications and advocacy officer with UN Women in Tanzania. The two things that I would like to mention are;
    The importance of gender dis-aggregated data where possible on the payments companies or the state are making, especially with regards to compensation for land acquisition.
    Media coverage of the extractive industries and how women in particular are represented in the media in relation to the industry and its effects, or reached through the media could be important to consider, especially in the first stage of the chain.

    • apowell2013 says:

      Thanks Stephanie! I think that’s a really important point about the media coverage of women and the extractive industries. I feel there is a tension between really driving home the point of how women are adversely and differently affected by the extractive industries, but also not portraying them as victims. Have you seen any good articles that manage to get the balance right?

      • Hi Alice, not as yet in the Tanzanian media.

        I thought this story, which was reprinted in the local press in Tanzania was interesting;
        http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/03/07/us-mozambique-communities-idUSBRE92605T20130307

        Among my clippings I also note the EAC deputy secretary general (Productive and Social Services) Ms Jeca Eriyo highlighted recently at an EAC meeting the potential of massive gas and oil discoveries in East Africa and whether women had been consulted in designing models for the utilization of the resources.

        Additionally the Tanzania Media Fund has just started a fellowship programme on reporting on the extractive industries which should see more reporting on the industry here.

        • apowell2013 says:

          I love that story! Thanks for sharing Stephanie. That’s very interesting (and encouraging) to hear that the EAC deputy secretary has been highlighting women’s roles. With the discoveries in East Africa being fairly recent, the region has a great opportunity to fully involve women in the process from the start (hopefully ensuring women then profit from natural resource extraction rather than suffer from it).

          I’d be interested to hear how the fellowship programme goes – several of our national coalitions work with media to encourage them to report on the extractive industries. It isn’t always easy to do.

  8. Sophia Harding says:

    Those are really good – yet graphic – points you make Mita. Should do more to make explicit the links with achievement of vital MDGs, such as maternal health and infant mortality?

    • Mita says:

      Hi Sophia, yes I think linking the achievement of vital MDGs you mentioned is useful. At the project level it would be good to have a record of health impact assessment for the community around the site.

  9. Alan Wolfe says:

    Marinke, it seems that ‘ASM is crucial’ was a common sentiment / elephant in the room at Mining Indaba

    • Marinke says:

      it was indeed….. It is really interesting to hear how policy makers don’t want to touch upon this issue yet it is so crucial. PWYP Indonesia has started to work a bit on the licencing element (given out by local government) and provide some transparency here. It would be interesting to find out if there is data on how many women own licences versus men. I have a feeling it is the men who control these and women are ’employees’… Any information on this?

      • Alan Wolfe says:

        Not only policy makers; a lot of donors don’t want to touch it as it’s just too messy. It’d be very interesting to find out but I’m guessing the only way would be via a very cooperative Ministry of Mines or if the cadastres are online. I can ask a colleague who is doing online cadastres….

  10. Firas Gharaibeh says:

    Dear All,
    Greetings from UN Women South Sudan.
    Sandra and I just joined the chat.

  11. Christina Hill says:

    Hi Alice
    Christina Hill from Oxfam Australia’s mining advocacy team here.
    Firstly let me say well done to you and the team who wrote the gender responsive value chain at the workshop earlier this year – it is really terrific.
    I have some suggestions you may want to consider to further strengthen the value chain. Here goes:
    * points 6 to 10 relate to what PWYP coalitions can do in each country as well as the role of EITI MSGs where they exist. Hence I believe that we should promote the leadership and participation of women in all PWYP coalitions and EITI MSGs – maybe these could be one of the underlying principles
    * Point 1 could include that communication methods should also take into account women’s ability to participate in commuity forums and the like
    * can we say something in Point 2 about Gender Impact Assessments (Oxfam has a guide in this)?
    * Forumal company level grievance mechanisms (point 5) are also important and should involve women in their design, as well as men and youth from mine affected communties (OXfam also has a guide on this

    • Sophia Harding says:

      Absolutely agree with you Christina about the need to get women better represented in our own PWYP coalitions and the EITI governance structures in-country. Any further suggestions on how we can encourage women’s representation (beyond what we are / have been doing)?

      • Christina Hill says:

        Good question. Marinke makes some good points on this issue, including some of the challenges that women face.
        I participated in a discussion at OXfam on a similar issue a while back – a view was expressed was that the only way support women’s involvement is to regulate or mandate it. No excuses for not involving women – this does of course assume that others are preventing women from getting involved or fail to see women’s absences

        • Marinke says:

          Actually just reading this exciting discussion thanks Alice for initiating it, we will commission a study into EITI mutlistakeholder governance at national level; we should include a gender component in the study to find out how many women are in the MSGs, how CSOs on the MSG relate to women’s groups etc….

    • apowell2013 says:

      Hi Christina,

      Yes, we can certainly say something about Gender Impact Assessments in point 2. Would you be able to share the guide with us? It sounds like a great resource.

    • Marinke says:

      Luckily our global Steering committee has 4 female powerhouses and for the first time ever there are 4 female EITI CSO board members (more than companies and implementing and supporting governments combined!). So we are making progress but I still see too many governance structures within the coalition that are all male… Not acceptable and as part of Vision 20/20 we will try and address this. During the workshop in Tanzania we did have a discussion on how to promote more female leaders (particularl in EITI context). UN Women asked some good questions around time commitment, travel commitment etc which are required but could impede on the myriad of professional and family commitments a women has……Uganda has an excellent gender and mining initiative to help empower more female leaders at local level…

      • Alan Wolfe says:

        My observations of Perth’s mining dominated economy are that women can have a huge impact on the scene so I hope there are more initiatives like Uganda’s. Any links? Thanks

    • Alan Wolfe says:

      Hi Christina,
      Regarding ‘Forumal company level grievance mechanisms’ a civil society colleague is starting up a business featuring grievance mechanisms via mobile technology. Perhaps this would be better suited for women that are typically more socially connected but not always with sufficient power to play a large role in forums?

      • Christina Hill says:

        Good idea Alan
        Maybe this is something PWYP could pilot somewhere?
        I need to sign off now – can’t be late to my 7 pm yoga class! Thanks everyone for a very productive discussion 🙂

      • apowell2013 says:

        Hi Alan,

        That’s an incredibly interesting idea – it could help to resolve one of the questions that underlines the whole chain, which is how do we ensure that the communication channels (whether from communities to civil society/industry or from civil society/industry to communities) include women? In some cases they might also need a safe space where they feel free to be honest about their thoughts and grievances.

        One of our colleagues is working on a project in Papua New Guinea, using SMS to collect information and grievances from communities. I’ll get more information from her and share it.

        • Alan Wolfe says:

          That would be great Alice; I wonder if we’re talking about the same colleague? Either way, you’d think that the less formal and more open forms of communication would suit women over men…

    • Christina Hill says:

      A few more points from me
      Was it worth it ?- it would good to also track who gets the mining jobs and what this means for individual,family and community well being. Community members (not just consultants) should also be offer the oportunity to get involved in impact assessments – you’ll get better data and biuld peoples confidence in engaging with the mining companies
      Gender responsive indicators/monitoring should also look at women’s workload – a lot of the literature suggests that mining increases women’s worksloads, especailly unpaid work

  12. Christian says:

    hi again,
    Christian, UN Women ESA regional office. I went through the chain and it gives an interesting summary of the extractive industry. However, I would like to know if there is any information portraying the extractive industry according to the “people perspective”, especially those directly affected by the industry. what are their opinions of the extractive industry and how do they perceive it to be conducted? How do they understand and capture their benefits of this activity?

    • apowell2013 says:

      Hi Christian,

      That’s a very good point. I think we certainly need more information about how communities interact with the extractive industry and what their opinions and perceptions are. I imagine it differs a fair bit from one community to the other depending on how the project in their locality is being conducted.

      One of our colleagues in DRC recently visited mining projects all over the country, conducting surveys to see how women were affected by extractive projects and learn about their experiences of living in ‘mining cities’. It’s being translated from the French at the moment, but once I have it in English I am more than happy to share it.

      • Christian says:

        hi Alice, that sounds like a good doc to read! I wouldn’t mind if you share even the French version. I can still read. DRC is my country as well and I will be interested to read about how population view extractive industry. Especially in the regions affected by armed conflicts such as the Kivu.

        Thank you

        • apowell2013 says:

          Hi Christian,

          I’ll send it over to you! There are very active CSOs in DRC at the moment pushing for women’s involvement in the campaign for a responsible extractive industry. One group, femmes et justice, have set up a newsletter – voix des femmes – where they share lots of their work and experiences in the country. I’ll send you a copy of that too – it makes for a very interesting read!

  13. Firas Gharaibeh says:

    Dear All,
    We have just started discussions in South Sudan on IE.
    Has the value chain study been piloted in any country.
    In the beginning, we are going to focus on petroleum and mining sectors of EI. We are thinking of reviewing the national strategies, policies, legal frameworks, etc… Map out the actors in the petroleum and mining sectors with a view of promoting women participation in decision making process.
    Any thoughts on our way forward.

    • Marinke says:

      Hi Firas nice to ‘see’ you again. I still need to follow up with you regarding Cordaid: they both have an extractive plus gender programme in South Sudan so will be able ot help you take this forward. But a review and mapping seems certainly like the right place to start… if you have some small funds available to do some action research on the impact of mining and oil on gender dynamics (the same way as they did in DRC which Alice mentioned above) it may help you get more ammunition. I remember reading in a recent report on South Sudan that the community has not benefited at all from the extraction – I wonder if there is a gender component there?

    • apowell2013 says:

      Hi Firas,

      This chain hasn’t been piloted in any country yet, although many civil society organisations are doing great work on each step of the chain.

      The chain is still at a very early stage, we created it because we wanted one that captures the gender component to the extractive value chain. We wrote it at a workshop with UN Women and PWYP members in Tanzania last March.

      We’re now taking the opportunity to hear from lots of other people before we finalise the chain.

      Good luck with your work! It is so important to promote women’s participation in the decision making process.

      I wonder if any of the others in this discussion have any tips for your way forward?

      We also have a discussion list where we share resources and information about gender and the extractives, if you’d like to sign up to it just drop me a line! (apowell@publishwhatyoupay.org)

      • Alan Wolfe says:

        Just one minor thought Alice about possibilities: TI Western Australia operates in close contact with companies as our economy is very mining dominated. They always seem to like an easily consumed ‘takeaway’ so if the VC could be presented simply along with the key copmany actions to assist in each VC ‘link’, that would allow us to help with outreach.

        • apowell2013 says:

          Thanks for that valuable insight Alan. I’d definitely be keen to create a version like that: an easy ‘takeaway’ for companies. Perhaps once we’ve finalised it I could draft an attempt at the takeaways and share with you for your thoughts and comments? (Without wishing to impose on your time naturally!)

          • Alan Wolfe says:

            No worries, that sounds good. We’ve committed to having PWYP material at our events and this seems like an item the companies would be interested in.

  14. Hi, this is Dhanny from Revenue Watch Asia Pacific. I think the value chain is already covers all. Just want to touch a little bit concerning community development. With EI activity in an area, community tends to have high expectation for an increase in economy and welfare, particularly from CSR fund/activity. But often the CSR activity fails to incorporate gender aspect. They tend to target infrastructure building (which is not wrong btw) and less in equipping the community with sustainable benefit. I think women should play more roles in determining what kind of CSR project could benefit their community (they mostly impacted as the family caretaker), and should involve actively in monitor the implementation. Maybe we can insert the strong requirements to have women participation somewhere in Publish What You Earn and How You Spend (steps 7-8).

    • Marinke says:

      Hi Dhanny, apa kabar? Completely agree with you.. You may find this study very interesting from http://www.devpolicy.org/we-want-what-the-ok-tedi-women-have-20121010/ where women in a mining area in PNG negotiated that 10% of the benefits are ringfenced and controlled by women…. While there are many challenges with this in wat is probably the most gender unequal society in the world there were three interesting recommendations coming out of the study that bear relevance for your points:
      •Establishing quality negotiation processes that try and address information and power asymmetries between the parties lends itself to more durable deals – and also deals that provide space for women.
      •Women can try and leverage mining company incentives (for “less conflictual development” “more effective CSR” “more reliable workers”) to overcome reticent men in their own communities.
      •Seemingly minor ‘tweaks’ to benefit delivery (like family bank accounts) can be as important to ultimate impacts as the overarching terms of a particular deal.
      Interesting isn’t it?

      • Hi Marinke, kabar baik! 🙂 Thank you for the article. It is very interesting and a good news indeed! Wonder how the women group manage to achieve that, do they face any resistance from other groups in the community. Would love to learn more on their expereince

    • Sophie says:

      Thanks Dhanny, I think that’s a really good point about CSR. There was an article about a project in Latin America where CSR went to training business women. Do you think this kind of project is a step in the right direction? https://extractingequality.wordpress.com/2013/06/05/training-business-women-in-mining-communities-in-latin-america/

  15. Marinke says:

    Very exciting discussion and quite a bit of follow up needed on sharing documents…. Thanks every one, look forward to taking this issue forward…..

  16. Sandra Kiapi says:

    Dear Alice,

    Thank-you for your feedback. I think the chain is informative for us as we start out.

    We will email you. Best regards,

  17. Christian says:

    it will also be great to share later a brief summary of key points of this discussion as it is so informative!

    Thank you

  18. Joe Williams says:

    Hi all,

    Joe here from PWYP International.

    I am not quite sure how to integrate this issue into our chain for change but I wonder how we can be a bit more proactive on the company side.

    In the UK with have a progressive business Minister Jo Swinson who mentioned the importance of diversity on company board in the extractive sector: “Diversity on boards is also relevant to the extractive and mining industries. In the FTSE 100, there are currently 12 mining companies, half of which have no women on their boards. That means that, of the only eight companies in the FTSE 100 that have no women on their boards, three quarters are mining companies. I hope that those companies look at that in detail, because the rest of the FTSE 100 companies seem to be taking significant action, so they are lagging significantly behind.”

    I think the challenge is two-fold: how to ensure women are more fairly represented on company boards and executive positions and secondly how to ensure those women aline with the principles of transparency and accountability in the extractive industry.

    We must not forget how important the companies are in all of this – if we had more sympathetic gender responsive companies perhaps we would see some real change from within.

    Any ideas how we can integrate this into our chain for change or campaigning?

  19. apowell2013 says:

    Thank you so much everyone! That was a fantastic discussion – so many topics covered, ideas exchanged and resources shared. It’s also given us a lot of food for thought for our value chain, and already I can see a few amendments we should make to it.

    I’ll write up a quick summary of the key issues and the resources and share that around.

    As well as this being a rich discussion, it was lovely to get to know one another a bit. Please do feel free to share information and resources via the extracting equality mailing list, and if you ever would like to contribute a blog please let me know!
