To mark the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture, this event will showcase how the recently UK Government funded ASPIRE project worked towards increasing the adaptive capacity of coastal communities and small-scale fishers to climate change. The event will bring together organisations that have collaborated on the ASPIRE project, which aimed to build community resilience to climate change by strengthening the integration of sexual and reproductive health services with community-based conservation activities. This will be a unique opportunity to hear insights from actors in both conservation and sexual reproductive health sectors, as well as from experts in human-centred design.
In this session we will discuss and explore:
- The principles and benefits of cross-sectoral, health-environment programming and how this can be applied in coastal communities.
- Innovations developed under the ASPIRE project to strengthen community resilience to climate change through improving sexual and reproductive health and rights, and
- The principles of effective collaboration between partners from different sectors, and how HCD has supported the process.
