ULAM (Union Latinoamericana De Mujeres)

ULAM is a network of grassroots women organisations across Latin America who are defending the environment and their human rights against the extractive industry. A principle aim of ULAM is ‘to ensure that governments and corporations uphold women’s rights to participate in and challenge mining policies/practices.” Further aims are to
  1. Position the Network as a regional platform where, collectively, activists will be able to
    • learn about their rights and feel safe to participate in development decisions,
    • produce a nurturing environment for the exchange of experiences and a wider understanding of global mining issues.
  2. Build their capacity to participate in issues of development.
  3. Influence all stakeholders.
  4. Generate research that facilitates the development of a gender-orientated perspective on mining, grounded in women’s experiences.
