A Global Review

The Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are the most central and globally representative climate policy documents that outline the national climate plans of countries that have ratified the Paris Climate Agreement. Submitted every five years, the NDCs indicate the voluntary commitments of countries to achieving agreed-upon mitigation and adaptation goals. With climate impacts increasing in scale and intensity, communities on the frontlines are becoming more vulnerable, especially women and girls. As the year 2023 marks the conclusion of the first global stocktake of the Paris Agreement, this report reflects on how 119 NDCs incorporated SRHR issues and seeks to inform the next cycle of NDCs to be submitted in 2025. UNFPA, in collaboration with Queen Mary University of London, conducted a systematic content analysis of SRHR references and related thematic areas in NDC documents for 119 countries. Accompanying this will be regional reports for five regions: Arab States, Asia Pacific, East and Southern Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean and West and Central Africa. This global report examines the integration of sexual reproductive health and rights and related themes - including health, gender, population dynamics, youth, human rights, vulnerable groups and participation - in the NDCs of countries from 2020. It offers recommendations on how the next submissions can more effectively address these intersections in terms of impact, commitments, budget and other critical actions.
