WGC Issue Brief: SRHR & Climate

Climate Justice and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights

The Women & Gender Constituency is pleased to release the first in our series of Issue Briefs in advance of COP26. 

Climate change, gender equality, and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) are inextricably linked. SRHR must be considered as a key component of climate adaptation and resilience action and of climate justice.

The Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights and Climate Justice (SRHR & CJ) Coalition is a global network committed to collective action and coordinated advocacy to advance SRHR and gender equality in the context of climate change from an intersectionality and climate justice approach.

The Women and Gender Constituency is one of the nine stakeholder groups of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), consisting currently of 33 women’s and environmental civil society organizations and a network of more than 600 individuals and feminist organizations or movements focusing on gender equality and women’s human rights to achieve climate justice.
