Dear Family Planning Champion,
When we talk about climate change, we often talk about how we can build a more sustainable future for the health and well-being of communities and the environment. Family planning professionals know that it’s nearly impossible to delve into that topic without considering sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
SRHR contributes to reducing inequalities and increases individuals’ and communities’ resilience to climate change to help ensure no one is left behind as climate impacts intensify. Don’t miss an upcoming webinar that will explore this in detail.

Next Tuesday, October 19, at 9 a.m. EST/1 p.m. GMT, join the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, UNFPA, FP2030, and Women Deliver for a discussion on how to advance SRHR as a critical component of climate change adaptation to promote resilience. Climate change is a major threat to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. But with the appropriate policies, program implementation, and commitments, we can build a future that both realizes SRHR goals and mitigates the impacts of climate change. This webinar will have simultaneous interpretation available in French, Spanish, and International Sign Language.
