Natural Resources and Extractive Industries

At a Glance

Oxfam works with partners to reverse the entrenched gender bias in the extractive sector, in which decisions, opportunities and economic benefits tend to go to men, while women disproportionately experience the adverse impacts. Natural resource governance needs women’s leadership and a strong intersectional gender lens in order to create just and sustainable outcomes for all.
