The Latin American Mining Monitoring Programme is a London-based charity dedicated to supporting Latin American women and their communities in their campaign for human rights, sustainable and participatory development, corporate social responsibility and gender mainstreaming in the mining industry.
LAMMP provides training and support services for Latin American women affected by mining and contributes to research on the impact of mining on local communities from a gender perspective. Through the Union of Latin American Women (ULAM in Spanish) which is a network of women defenders, LAMMP provides Latin American women activists and partner organisations with capacity building, advocacy and financial support and a forum for networking, strategy development and the sharing of ideas and experiences.
The Latin American Mining Monitoring Programme (LAMMP) is an international, non-denominational, non-profit environmental organisation. It is based in London and operates through a network of organisations in Latin America. In addition, LAMMP maintains close contact with a network of international organisations that provide support in their own areas of expertise and seek to strengthen civil society in Latin America.
What makes LAMMP unique is the fact that it is the only non-profit, international environmental organisation dedicated exclusively to the issues of women and mining, and to supporting women’s Latin American organisations and indigenous women’s grass-roots groups in all stages of their activities of opposition to mining.
