Boom Time Blues: Big oil’s gender impacts in Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Sakhalin
Study | 22 September 2006
Such research was long overdue, as in the past the gender impacts involved in extractive industry projects have been overshadowed by other equally grave concerns about their economic and environmental influence.
The findings in the study show that the BTC pipeline and the Sakhalin II oil and gas projects have inflicted considerable social and gender problems on local communities, including increased poverty, hindered access to subsistence resources, increased occurrence of still births, prostitution, HIV/AIDS and other diseases in local communities.
Theme: Social & economic impacts
Location: Azerbaijan | Georgia | Russia
