Removing barriers to health and education: An essential climate adaptation and resilience strategy
You are warmly invited to join global experts, ministers and youth advocates for a high-level discussion on why removing barriers to family planning and girls' education is crucial to accelerating climate adaptation and resilience.

Monday 8th November, 12:30 - 13:30 GMT.

The empowerment of women and girls, and gender-responsive climate action, is critical for climate change adaptation and resilience. But existing health, protection and education systems are not ready for the challenges posed by climate change. National climate plans and climate funding mechanisms must recognise and resource efforts to remove barriers to family planning and girls’ education as part of a comprehensive approach to adaptation and building climate resilience. For example, with just 0.5% of the targeted $100 billion annual sum to help developing countries respond to climate change, everyone who wants contraception could access it, including those on the frontline of the climate crisis.

This session will:

- Highlight evidence and examples of how climate change affects women and girls, and the importance of reproductive choice and girls’ education in adaptation efforts and resilience building.
- Share recommendations and strategies from practitioners working at the nexus of sexual and reproductive health and rights and climate.
