This case study provides key perspectives on how to maximize some of the key opportunities identified in the IGF report Women in Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining: Challenges and opportunities for greater participation. It presents findings of interviews with a select informant group whose perspectives can be considered as the beginning of many consultations that shed light on practical solutions to the recurring challenges women continue to face in artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM). Interviewees included miners, miners’ group leaders and practitioners, and members of academia.
