Media Kit: New IPCC Report Recognizes Family Planning Among Social Dimensions of Climate Change Adaptation

Working Group II’s contribution to the fifth assessment (AR5) Report, “Climate Change 2014: Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability,” highlights population dynamics and the important role that family planning can play in reducing climate change vulnerability and as a potential adaptation
strategy.
