The 6th SRHR Knowledge Fair 2021 by Share-Net Bangladesh is taking place on 21st November 2021. The day-long event will be held online on its virtual platform (for all audience/attendees) which has been made even more user friendly and also accessible for persons with disabilities.
Knowledge Fair on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) is an annual event of Share-Net Bangladesh. Each year a theme is selected on the broad umbrella of SRHR to organise the largest event on SRHR knowledge sharing. In this event, researchers, practitioners, academicians, policy analysts, professionals and students in the field of SRHR come together under one roof to share and learn new knowledge on different SRHR issues.
The theme for this year is ‘Climate Change and SRHR’. Focusing on the theme, the event hosts plenary, scientific paper presentation, poster presentation, stall exhibition, and much more. Through the interactive sessions and active participation of the participants, the event will provide a wonderful platform to have thematic discussions on research findings, lessons learned, policy implications and innovative strategies for its members and Communities of Practice (CoP) who are working in the field of SRHR.
Over the years, researchers are establishing the significant connection between climate change and demeaning SRHR. According to the researchers, in Bangladesh while discriminatory gender roles, power relationships and social norms systematically create gender inequality, climate change and its consequences further intensifies women’s and girls’ social vulnerability causing more child marriage, violence. That is why it is time that we focus on the impact of climate change in the practice of SRHR. The theme has a broad perspective, however for the 2021 SRHR Knowledge Fair, it will focus on the following thematic topics for discussion –
1. Climate change induced gender-based violence
2. Child marriage and climate change
At the closing session, we will announce the ‘SRHR Recognition of the Year’ awards for 2021 in the youth and general category recognizing extraordinary and meaningful contributions in the field of SRHR.
Considering the COVID-19 situation, the event is going to be held exclusively on its virtual platform which has been made even more user friendly and attractive. To attend the 6th SRHR Knowledge Fair, go to the Virtual Platform at https://kf2021.share-netbangladesh.org/
