maldives scoping study on climate change and srhr

The government of Maldives need to address the impacts of climate change based on vulnerable groups such as women and incorporate appropriate measures into policies and decision making, which is lacking at the moment. This would help governments to provide a more holistic package of support that recognises the linkages of resource conservation, environmental management, health and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), of island individuals with a better focus on vulnerable groups such as women.

This study investigates the knowledge and awareness level of women, men, fishermen, youth, policy makers and other stakeholders including government officials in some island communities of Maldives, on linkages between climate change impacts and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
