This project asks how the empowerment of women within a mine-affected community in Indonesia can contribute to the development of sustainable local livelihoods, and aims to test the hypothesis that womenâ€™s empowerment is the key to wider community empowerment and the creation of sustainable livelihoods in mine-affected communities. The results of the research will contribute to the formulation of better strategies or models of good practice for the management of â€˜community affairsâ€™ by mining companies operating in Indonesia and other developing countries of the Asia Pacific region. It will also contribute to the small but growing body of literature which relates the mining-community interface to theories of gender and development.
