Resume:

Verdens befolkning forventes at nå 8,5 milliarder i 2030 og 9,7 milliarder i 2050. Den højeste og hurtigste befolkningstilvækst sker i Afrika, som samtidig bærer den største byrde ift. både klimaforandringer og manglende reproduktiv sundhed og rettigheder (RSR). Selv om klimaforandringer, bæredygtig udvikling og befolkningsudvikling hænger uløseligt sammen, er dette sjældent reflekteret i klimatilpasningsplaner. Der mangler stærke advocacyorganisationer i syd, der kan fremme denne dagsorden nationalt og internationalt. Sex & Samfund vil i kraft af sin koordinerende funktion i den globale Population and Sustainable Development Alliance (PSDA) styrke advocacy-kapaciteten hos udvalgte PSDA-medlemmer i Syd og arbejde sammen for en langsigtet integration af befolkningsdynamikker, SRSR, køn og ligestilling i klimatilpasningsindsatser for at bidrage til styrket resiliens hos de mest sårbare befolkningsgrupper.
