Raising the Bar on Asian Women’s SRHR in the Age of Climate Change

From ARROW, 2018

The brief aims to look at how the goals under review (Goals 6, 7, 11, 12, 15 and 17) at the High-level Political Forum (HLPF) in 2018, affect women’s health, in particular their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), in Asia within the context of climate change. For each goal, the narrative covers: (i) information and issues pertaining to women’s health, particularly their SRHR, related to the goal; (ii) the interlinkages between the particular goal and Goals 3 (good health and well-being) and 5 (gender equality); (iii) gaps and challenges identified that will have impact on women’s health, particularly their SRHR; and (iv) recommendations that will contribute to improving women’s health, in particular their SRHR. For Goal 17 (partnership for the goals), which is a cross-cutting goal that applies to all of the SDGs, recommendations will be made to strengthen the means of implementation in the areas of finance, technology, capacity building, trade, and systemic issues.
