Sustainable Mining Institute

Part discussion, part handbook, this document aims to bridge the gap between the current understanding of the impact of mining on Mongolian herder communities, in particular the different impacts on women, men and their traditional livelihoods. It explores the interactions between herding and mining in Mongolia; the current and future socio-economic, institutional and ecological factors that influence this interaction; and how mining projects influence the current gender roles and responsibilities in traditionally herder communities.
