About the event
Charting transferability
Women and girls face heightened vulnerabilities to the adverse effects of climate change, and efforts are increasingly underway to integrate a gendered perspective into responses to climate change with the ultimate goal of advancing gender equality. With the increasing prioritisation of these efforts, there is an opportunity to draw on learning and evidence from other areas, particularly sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). The SRHR field has an extensive body of evidence evaluating gender-responsive programming and has been at the forefront of advancing gender equality in health.
What's included
This session builds on an extensive analysis of SRHR evidence led by The United Nations University International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH) and focuses on charting the transferability of promising approaches and lessons on gender programming from the SRHR space to strategies and interventions aimed at mitigating and responding to climate change.
