While the extractive sector is often seen as male-dominated, with mining jobs thought to require only physical strength, the reality is that women have long been an essential part of the industry. However, despite this, gender inequality persists in the sector, as evidenced by the data from the Philippine Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (PH-EITI).

The Philippine Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (PH-EITI) Secretariat collaborated with its Mongolian counterpart for a peer learning session at the Department of Finance (DOF) on December 5, 2023. This gathering aimed to exchange insights and uphold the EITI Standard.

A government-led, multi-stakeholder initiative implementing EITI, the global standard that promotes the open, accountable management, and good governance of oil, gas, and mineral resources. PH-EITI was created on 26 November 2013 through EO No. 147, s. of 2013. It is a government commitment first announced through EO No. 79, s. of 2012.
