In Our Words: Voices of Women of African Descent for Reproductive and Climate Justice

UNFPA, 2022

This advocacy brief amplifies the voices of Afrodescendent activists, practitioners and advocates in climate and reproductive health, rights and justice. It demonstrates how women of African descent are leading and inspiring action in their communities and spotlights the pervasiveness of discrimination and how it manifests to impact Afrodescendent women and girls.

The brief also examines how society’s poorest and most vulnerable, despite having contributed very little to the global climate crisis, are too often left to deal with its worst effects. Finally it underscores action points brought forward by civil society organizations and practitioners, which recommend recognizing the role of racism, investing in research on how climate change affects Afro-descendant communities and amplifying Afro-descendant voices and expertise along the road to climate justice.

Time for Action: Inclusion of Gender and SRHR in Climate Action

ARROW, 2022

This brief is the culmination of two sub-regional consultations organised by the Asian-Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (ARROW) in 2022 with 35 civil society organizations (CSOs) in South and South East Asia including Bangladesh, Cambodia, Nepal Pakistan, the Philippines, and Vietnam.

These CSOs work on issues of climate change, gender and SRHR, and represent diverse identities including but not limited to women, SOCIESC, young people, women with disabilities and indigenous peoples. These CSOs discussed and defined the regional priorities on the intersections of climate change, gender and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), with an aim to demand accounability from decision makers at various national, regional and global spaces that negotiate and decide climate actions.

NEW RESEARCH IS IN: Climate Change Impacts Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health

IPAS, 2022

Between 2020-2021, Ipas conducted qualitative research in Zambezia, Mozambique and Khulna, Bangladesh. We wanted to understand how women’s experiences with climate change impact their sexual and reproductive health decisionmaking, behavior, and outcomes in cyclone-prone communties. Mozambique and Bangladesh are both highly vulnerable to cyclones and flooding, making them among the countries most severely impacted by climate change – which in turn exacerbates poverty and poor health outcomes for rural and coastal populations.

Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in National Climate Policy

UNFPA, 2021

National climate policies play a key role in determining responses to climate change, including plans to build adaptive capacity and resilience. An evaluation of national climate policies with a specific focus on health, including sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) issues, can provide important information on gaps and areas of potential improvement to ensure healthy and resilient communities.

UNFPA, in collaboration with Queen Mary University of London, undertook a review and systematic content analysis of SRHR references and related thematic areas in Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) documents for 50 countries. The review aimed to describe how SRHR is currently represented in NDC and related policy documents to help determine how climate policy can better reflect SRHR. Ten key findings and recommendations emerged that are relevant to integrating SRHR into climate policy and planning.

Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) in National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Processes

Angie Dazé, on behalf of the NAP Global Network and Women Deliver, 2021

Governments around the world are advancing their National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes in an effor to build resilience to the negative impacts of climate change. With increased attention to gender issue 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 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 Link Between Climate Change and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights: An Evidence Review

Women Deliver, 2021

This evidence review is designed to be used by decision-makers and climate change, humanitarian, and gender equality advocates to better understand the linkages between sectors and align efforts to generate effective policies and programs. Drawing on published literature as well as key informant interviews, this evidence review explores: (i) the impact of climate change on SRHR and (ii) the linkages between climate action, including adaptation and mitigation, and SRHR. The evidence review also explores the evidence through an intersectional lens. Girls and women have numerous identities in addition to the gender, and systemic discrimination on the basis of these is often multiple and intersecting. Understanding how compounding crises and intersecting identities shape vulunerability and resilience to climate change and SRHR is necessary to make sure climate actions do not exacerbate inequalities.
