10 January 2018
“Gender, Land and Mining in Mongolia” is the product of two years of rigorous field research in Mongolia in collaboration with the Mongolian NGO, People Centered Conservation (PCC). It is the first country research report by the WOLTS (Women’s Land Tenure Security) project team at Mokoro and involved repeat rounds of both quantitative and qualitative participatory fieldwork to validate results.
Among other findings, the WOLTS Mongolia research has uncovered the phenomenon of fake divorce and documented numerous ways in which mining is exacerbating stresses on herding families’ lives.
