KAILA! - Pacific Voice For Action On Agenda 2030

Strengthening Climate Change Resilience through
Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health 

We acknowledge the importance of the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescent’s Health (2016- 2030) that reflects a new consensus on the need to better prioritize reproductive, maternal, newborn, children’s and adolescents’ health (RMNCAH) in humanitarian or fragile settings such as natural hazards, extreme climatic conditions, or disease outbreak that impact our islands

Recognizing the particular vulnerabilities of Pacific islands, the importance of engaging, as equal partners and participation of civil societies, women, youth and persons with disabilities, in all efforts towards building climate change resilience - leave no one behind. This includes providing support to inclusive sustainable development strategies, and responding to specific needs of persons with disabilities, vulnerable and marginalized groups.
