The generic management plan & checklist have been a response to the outcry that the Environmental Impacts Assessment (EIA) process was expensive & complex for small miners whose operations are simple, it resulted in miners operating outside of the law.
Lack of Environmental Management Plans by miners manifests itself through environmental degradation & improper handling of hazardous chemicals in the absence of a guiding plan resulting in pollution.
Minister Mupfumira took the opportunity to remind miners & farmers to work together in preventing veld fires but to utilise land productively as responsible & concerned citizens, responsibly protecting the environment for present & future generations.

Giving her address the Minister states that the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) & Checklist for Small Scale Miners are part of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process meant to ensure a balance between economic, socio-cultural & environmental considerations.
Small scale mining is a significant contributor to national gold production, but it negatively impacts the environment. It is imperative that the sector should abide by principles of #sustainabledevelopment not environment degradation. Environmental problems associated with Artisanal & Small scale Miners include mercury & cyanide pollution, acid mine drainage, river siltation, erosion, deforestation, landscape destruction & cultural damage which all need to be controlled.

Previously the focus for women was to produce for family consumption but today they have become pivotal in the nation-building and encouraged to have a broader scope how much their businesses are contributing the economy.

First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa commended and showed admiration for the Zimbabwe tourism sector for recognizing and empowering women in the sector while officiating at the at the launch of the national chapter of “Women in Tourism” in Harare today.

“Firstly, I would like to congratulate the members of the National Chapter for being nominated to represent the Women in Tourism at a national level. This is the beginning of a new chapter which needs seriousness, commitment, and engagement in an initiative and innovative mood,” Mrs. Mnangagwa said.

The formation of the Women in Tourism National Chapter
was long-overdue.
Women in Zimbabwe are known to be hard working and given the opportunity
they can do wonders and made a difference.
What was required is to get organized and have a standing structure to
proffer an effective channel of communication in order to promote and inspire
entrepreneurship in the tourism sector.

This structure is aimed at integrating women from different
backgrounds and spectrum within the sector to further a common goal of socio
and economic development. It also gives the platform for effective networking
and knowledge sharing.

Globally, tourism is a sector having the highest share of women employment with 49% of the workforce in hotels and restaurants, however, most of them assuming lower ranks, according to UNWTO.

The establishment of Women in Tourism gives women an opportunity to be masters of their own destiny and be able to run their businesses sustainably, create employment and sustain livelihoods.

“Women in Tourism National Chapter, you have a mammoth task before you which require dedication and willingness to work with other women at all levels. The trust of the people is invested upon you as their representatives, therefore, be prepared to delivery and stand for others in every situation for the benefit of Women in Tourism,” she continued.

“I would like to commend the Ministry of Environment, Tourism and Hospitality Industry for coming up with this initiative which is aimed at driving programmes that support the development and empowerment of women in the tourism sector.”

The First Lady further advised that programmes for mentorship and training should also be introduced in order to enhance scope and capabilities. “It is within our interests as Government to help women run sustainable tourism businesses that will compete regionally and globally, ” she said.

Women participation in mainstream economy is key to the development of the nation. The Government of Zimbabwe recognizes the importance of Women to a greater expectation. Policies were put in place to empower women in Zimbabwe, stand-alone Ministry responsible for women affairs and financial facilities to support women projects.

Woman participation in the economy has been raised to a higher level where tourism structures are encouraged at national, regional and international levels. Zimbabwe had an opportunity to attend the UNWTO Commission for Africa Meeting which was held in Nigeria last year.
