Crisis settings   |   26 October 2021 



While navigating the climate crisis, it is essential that women and girls have access to sexual and reproductive health and rights.

However, new analysis from MSI Reproductive Choices has found that due to climate-related disruptions, an estimated 14 million women and girls are at risk of losing access to contraception over the next decade, unless access is protected.

Read about the impact of climate change on contraceptive access, and the importance of protecting sexual and reproductive health and rights for those on the frontline, in our two-page briefing: The impact of the climate crisis on reproductive choice.
