Sex, Rights, Gender in the Age of Climate Change

While reproductive health services has been recognized as critical to intervention strategies in climate change as evidenced by the development, implementation and monitoring of the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) in emergency situations, sexual and reproductive rights are recognised to a lesser degree, a growing trend in discourses on development. The recognition of sexual and reproductive rights in interventions on climate change is crucial to stop the perpetuation of existing gender norms and gender-based violence, among other things. The current brief seeks to elucidate the nuances of the interlinkages between climate change and sexual and reproductive rights through preliminary evidence available, as well as further advocacy on inclusion of sexual and reproductive rights in the development agenda.
