Climate change disproportionately threatens the most vulnerable girls and women, in all their intersecting identities, and has detrimental effects on SRHR.

Structural gender inequality makes girls and women more vulnerable to the harms of climate change, such as food insecurity or displacement from natural disasters that create significant barriers to education, financial resources, and access to decision makers, processes and policies that shape their lives.

Climate change:

  • Harms maternal health
  • Leads to increased gender-based violence and child marriage
  • Reduces access to life-saving SRH services
