  • Reducing adverse air flow

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, August 4, 2017
    Objective: 

    With more than half the Earth’s population now living in urban areas, some changes in the indoor and outdoor climates of cities are bound to occur. Climate scientists’ greatest concern is traditionally the urban heat island (UHI) effect – city areas where temperatures can be several degrees higher because there is lots of concrete and little blue or green infrastructure like lakes, rivers and parks. But another effect – air flow – can also cause serious health problems.

    Publication date: 
    Friday, August 4, 2017
    Objective: 

    On a global basis cities are growing and changing so fast that many authorities are struggling to cope. More people can mean more economic activity and wealth, but it can also mean added strain on energy, water, health, transport and housing facilities. All this, in turn, puts pressure on the environment, and more widely on climate change.

  • Raising the bar on Asian women's SRHR in the age of climate change

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, August 27, 2018
    Sectors: 
    Approach: 

    The inclusion of women’s SRHR within climate change discourse, policies, strategies, programming, and financing is long overdue. Coherence between the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement is of vital importance. Coherence has been much talked about and documented in negotiations outcome documents and national documents. The talk must now lead to concrete action, particularly to make a difference to women and girls living in the most marginalised and vulnerable communities who bear the double burden of gender inequality and climate change.
