Adriana, E., et al, Mainstreaming Gender into Extractive Industries Projects: Guidance Notes for Task Team Leaders, Extractive Industries and Development Series No. 9, 2009

This paper is a follow up to the earlier paper on Gender Dimensions in the Extractive Industries: Mining for Equity (Adriana et al, 2009). It focuses specifically on how gender issues can be incorporated into all phases of EI projects and implementation. The authors stressed the importance of gender in conducting upstream macro-social analysis in EI projects as such analysis may help in fashioning sustainably-enhanced equitable opportunities for men and women. It may also help to mitigate the risks created by EI and amplify the potential benefits to both men and women, leading to increased profits, ability and more sustainable development impacts.

The paper suggests guidelines on the ways that EI can impact men and women differently and the associated development implications and provides step by step suggestions on how to understand and integrate gender issues into World Bank Group Extractive Industries Projects design. These are specifically contained in tables under several heads.
