The report brings together population, gender, and reproductive health indicators for the 80 most vulnerable countries in the world, as ranked by the Notre Dame Global Adaptation Initiative. It describes global trends in population growth and climate change vulnerability. And it highlights five countries around the world where the convergence of these trends creates significant challenges for resilience and adaptation over the long term.
However, community efforts in these countries demonstrate innovative policy and program approaches that advance gender equity, reproductive health and rights, and climate change adaptation in an integrated fashion. Scaling up such efforts offers significant untapped opportunity to strengthen both near-term and long-term prospects for adaptation and resilience.
