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 Office, FP2030, 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.
