WUSC and CECI through the West Africa Governance and Economic Sustainability in Extractive Areas (WAGES) project has facilitated the development of a gender equality strategy and capacity building for members of the Ghana Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (GHEITI) as part of the Project’s efforts aimed at facilitating mainstreaming of gender into the natural resource sector in Ghana. GHEITI is a member of the global Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) which is a global standard promoting open and accountable management of oil, gas and mineral resources.
The development of the gender equality strategy and capacity building was a response to a request by GHEITI to WUSC to support in developing the gender equality strategy and to help build capacity for their members on its application.
