Overburdened earth

This presentation explores the connections between population dynamics, access to comprehensive health care, and climate change. Through an historical examination of global population dynamics, the talk will clarify the links between poverty, marginalization, women’s rights, and environmental pressures made worse by climate change. It will conclude with a detailed argument explaining why expanding access to family planning and reproductive health care services is critical to women’s empowerment and can play an impactful role in climate adaptation and mitigation efforts.
