This report details findings on the prevalence and nature of Gender Based Violence (GBV) in mining communities in South Gobi, Mongolia. Mongolia is undergoing a widespread and rapid minerals boom that is changing the social and cultural landscape of the nation. This is most obvious in communities that reside in close proximity to large-scale mine operations. Evidence suggests that women often withstand the worst of the negative social impacts from mining. The increase in Gender Based Violence (GBV) is an example of this.
