NEW RESEARCH IS IN: Climate change impacts women’s sexual and reproductive health
Research findings from Mozambique and Bangladesh
Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent, disrupting national economies and individual lives.
Between 2020-2021, Ipas conducted qualitative research in Zambezia, Mozambique and Khulna, Bangladesh. We wanted to understand how women’s experiences with climate change impact their sexual and reproductive health decisionmaking, behavior, and outcomes in cyclone-prone communities. Mozambique and Bangladesh are both highly vulnerable to cyclones and flooding, making them among the countries most severely impacted by climate change—which in turn exacerbates poverty and poor health outcomes for rural and coastal populations.
