Traditionally, climate funders and policy makers have not integrated sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) within their strategies. The aim of this guide is to support more SRHR organisations and advocates to engage in climate change advocacy, to secure climate finance and to develop stronger partnerships with those already working on the connections between climate change and SRHR.

The Health of People and Environment–Lake Victoria Basin (HoPE–LVB), a cross-sectoral integrated Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) effort implemented by Pathfinder International and a range of partners in Kenya and Uganda during 2011-2019, aimed to improve interconnected health, environment, and development challenges in an ecologically biodiverse region. After an external evaluation in 2018 documented the results of the project, partners and donors were interested in learning about the ongoing sustainability of the project activities to draw lessons for designing future projects. Therefore in 2022, USAID through the Knowledge SUCCESS project, collaborated with a philanthropic partner, Preston-Werner Ventures, to conduct a rapid stock-taking exercise to explore the successes, challenges, and opportunities in scaling-up and sustaining the cross-sectoral programming. This learning brief features the voices from a range of stakeholders that were involved in the project to share their perspectives and knowledge on the scale-up and sustainability of HoPE-LVB activities.

Climate resilience and gender equality are inextricably linked, and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) are an essential element of gender equality. How can we ensure that climate action works hand in hand with efforts to realize SRHR? This website provides an interactive and visual experience to breaking down these questions.

Governments around the world are advancing their National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes in an effort to build resilience to the negative impacts of climate change. With increased attention to gender issues in adaptation action comes an opportunity to ensure that NAP processes take sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) issues into consideration.

This report explores the extent to which NAP processes recognize the linkages between climate change adaptation and the realization of SRHR, including maternal and newborn health, voluntary modern contraception, and gender-based violence. It draws on analysis of 19 NAP documents submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change by low- and medium- income countries, a sample of sector-specific NAPs for the health sector, and a selection of funding proposals for adaptation planning support from the Green Climate Fund.

The analysis presented in this report explores the extent to which NAP processes recognize the impacts of climate change on SRHR, as well as how gaps in realization of SRHR exacerbate vulnerability to climate change. It aims to promote an integrated and inclusive approach that moves countries forward on the mutually supportive objectives of resilience to climate change and realization of SRHR. The report is available in English, French, and Spanish.

This issue brief, first published ahead of COP26 underscores why climate change, gender equality, and SRHR are linked, and reinforces why SRHR must be considered a key component of climate adaptation, resilience action, and climate justice.

Climate change disproportionately threatens the most vulnerable girls and women, in all their intersecting identities, and has detrimental effects on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). This infographic highlights some of the ways that climate change affects SRHR, why this matters, and what steps must be taken for climate adaptation and resilience and to advance SRHR. A rights-based and intersectional approach to SRHR realization should be part of any and all climate change adaptation measures in order to ensure a healthy, empowered population, including women, girls, and young people. The United Kingdom Foreign, Commonwealth and Development OfficeFP2030, the UNFCCC Gender Secretariat, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and Women Deliver developed this infographic, which accompanies the webinar, “Building Forward Better: Advancing SRHR for Climate Adaptation and Resilience.” Available in English, French, and Spanish.

The aim of this guide is to outline the unmet need for family planning that exists in many parts of sub-Saharan Africa, highlight the barriers to accessing and using family planning that exist for many girls and women, explain why conservation organizations are uniquely placed to introduce such activities to the communities they work with, and provide guidance for any organization that wishes to start a program to tackle this issue. It is based on CHASE Africa’s experience over the past ten years of supporting local partners to run, and in several cases set-up, community health and family planning programs in Kenya and Uganda. While some of the guidance is context specific, the guide highlights how programs could be adapted to other situations and circumstances.

This video illustrates strategies for family planning and reproductive health program implementers and advocates to position their programs to access climate adaptation funding. A virtual watch party and workshop in April 2022 showcased the video and provided an opportunity for implementers and advocates to explore how to apply each of the strategies to their programming with advice from key experts.
