Guinea: Two women inspiring others with their commitment to the governance of natural resources

Impact story: 

Hadja Aicha Barry and Sayon Bérété – Two women inspiring others with their commitment to the governance of natural resources

Like most African nations, Guinea is a country marked by gender inequalities. Life in society is heavily dominated by men, while women generally have less room for manoeuvre in terms of decision-making, both within their own family and in the broader society.

This case study highlights the work of two women who have paved the way for more gender inclusive natural resource governance in Guinea.

This story is part of the PWYP Gender Project, which was made possible thanks to the support of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
