2024 marks thirty years since the landmark International Conference on Population and Development placed universal access to reproductive health and rights at the heart of sustainable development. The climate crisis poses significant challenges to this promise. As the climate crisis intensifies, women and girls face heightened risks to their health and well-being, including impacts on their SRHR.


Those who contribute the least to the climate crisis are also the most impacted, particularly girls, adolescents, and women. Yet, in conversations about climate and health as well as gender and climate, there is little acknowledgement of the multiple linkages between climate change and SRHR, including how fulfilling SRHR promotes climate resilience. Our panelists will discuss their current work on how best to respond, finance, measure,operationalize and scale climate-resilient solutions that are inclusive, equitable, and gender-responsive to safeguard SRHR for all.
