Virtual Learning Session | Climate action, gender equality, and resilient health systems: Integrated approaches in National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes

Join this virtual learning session to explore the intersections of health, gender equality, sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), and climate resilience!
April 15, 2021 9:00 am - 10:15 am EDT

(Open to public)


The impacts of climate change threaten people’s health, with risks ranging from injury and death due to extreme weather events, to effects on mental health. Building the resilience of health systems is an urgent priority, particularly in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the same time, there is increasing attention to the gender dimensions of climate change, as effective climate action requires consideration of the specific needs of people of all genders and social groups. Underpinning gender equality is the realization of SRHR, which can remove barriers to climate action. NAP processes represent an important opportunity to bring these issues together.

In collaboration with WHO and Women Deliver, we are hosting a virtual learning session to raise awareness of the need for an integrated approach that addresses the impacts of climate change, advances gender equality, and builds resilience of health systems.

Short 5-minute introductions will be given for each topic – with findings and recommendations from recent NAP document analyses – followed by a panel discussion and questions from the public.

Available in English, with live translations in French and Spanish.
