WAMA is a regional network of Women affected by extractives and mining operations in Asia. It is a collective voice of indigenous women, women mine workers, women living in communities displaced and threatened by the current economics of extractives. We work to amplify the demands and perspectives of women vis-à-vis extractives and sustainable natural resources
We, women from the different countries of Asia- women farmers, foragers, pastoralists, workers, researchers, activists, academics, scientists, poets and artists believe that the healthy co-existence of humankind on this earth and the well-being of all other species depend on the protection of Mother Earth where economics.
We live with a vision that economics and development be based on eco-system nurturing, women’s science and traditional knowledge so that the resource curse of unsustainable exploitation of minerals can be reversed. Women have the power to guide global economics to leave behind a healthy Earth for our future generations.
