Oxfam America

For Strengthening Women's Participation In Social Accountability In The Extractive Sectors

Overview
This grant to Oxfam America will support research on gender biases in transparency and accountability mechanisms in the extractives sector in Zambia and the Dominican Republic. Oxfam America will use the research findings to build the capacity of civil society organizations through training and mentoring to incorporate women’s rights in the extractives industry accountability agendas. Ultimately, Oxfam America will develop a model for incorporating a gender lens into the extractives transparency and accountability work, which could be replicated for advocacy at different levels.
