The report focuses on six select dimensions of human rights due diligence in extractive industries projects: (1) community relations; (2) land acquisition and resettlement; (3) security; (4) local content; (5) grievance resolution; and (6) strategic social investment. For each topic, a short overview of key gender issues is provided, as well as suggestions for addressing challenges and enhancing gender-responsive due diligence in practice. Further resources for extractive industries project staff are provided for each topic, and case studies are included to provide insights on key challenges and potential solutions in concrete project settings. The primary scope of the report is large-scale industrial mining, oil and gas projects and engagement in external relations (rather than the workforce). However, the information may also be relevant and applicable to industrial-size projects in other land-intensive industry sectors, such as renewable energies, infrastructure, forestry or agriculture.
