Synopsis

Women artisanal and small-scale gold miners (ASGM) in Colombia commonly experience harassment, sexual violence, and domestic violence, as identified in a 2018 study conducted by the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM). See how ARM and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s D-Lab (MIT D-Lab) addressed this issue through a RISE grants challenge project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The ‘Creative Capacity-Building to Address Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in the Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining Sector’ project used movement-building trainings to address GBV and environmental degradation in mining territories.
