In this Policy Brief, the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) and Share-Net Bangladesh (SNBD) analyse the intricate relationships between climate change, gender equality, and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and offer suggestions for policymakers.

SRHR is relevant to the climate conversation, and the following are some beginning guidelines for individuals who want to start or advance their work in this area. This is only meant to be a general overview; not all steps will apply to all organisations, and some organisations will carry out these procedures in a different manner.

Women in Bangladesh already endure significant levels of gender inequality and are more likely than men to be impacted by catastrophes related to climate change. For discussion and inclusion of the reproductive justice framework at the national level, it is necessary for national frameworks addressing climate change to address the issue of SRHR.

This policy brief reaffirmed that climate change adversely affects practically all SRHR outcomes and increases the risk of being left behind for vulnerable women and girls. It is essential that the IPCC, governmental organisations, GO, NGO, and regional women’s groups work together more.
