With support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Population Reference Bureau and Worldwatch Institute assembled a working group of experts from the climate change, family planning, and development assistance communities to examine the complex relationships between population dynamics and climate compatible development. The group’s goal was to identify approaches and opportunities to advance policy dialogue and policy action to include population dynamics, with an emphasis on family planning, into climate compatible development. The action opportunities fall under four strategic approaches which provide a path forward for groups interested in connecting these issues and ensuring that increasing access to family planning is part of efforts to achieve climate compatible development. Linking population, family planning, and climate change is unconventional for many policymakers. Cross-sectoral initiatives that highlight and integrate synergies in development plans and climate finance programs could reap enormous benefits as we tackle climate change.

    This paper synthesizes four case studies from Uganda, Myanmar, Sudan/Chad, and Burkina Faso, documenting strategies towards building gender equality through resilience projects. The purpose is to document how gender inequalities manifest themselves in all four locations; how gender is conceptualised in theories of change (ToCs); the operationalisation of objectives to tackle gender inequalities; internal and external obstacles to the implementation of gender-sensitive activities; and drivers that help NGOs transform gender relations and build resilience. The case studies describe how disasters and climate change affect gender groups and underscore the patriarchal social norms that disproportionately restrict women and girls’ equal access to rights and resources. This paper aims to demonstrate how to draw on promising practices to make resilience projects inclusive and equitable. It also recommends areas where further research could increase understanding of resilience to climate extremes and longer-term changes, and suggests how donors and funding can best support efforts to build communities’ resilience.

      The FP-SDGs Model is an evidence-based advocacy tool that projects medium- and long-term effects of three different family planning scenarios, capturing the significant impact that contraceptive use has on SDG achievement. The model can be applied in any country, and allows users to design multiple scenarios to show how investments in family planning, education, and the economy can accelerate progress toward the SDGs. By showcasing the benefits of contraceptive use related to health, society, and the economy, the model provides evidence that supports investments in family planning at national and subnational levels.

      Results from country-level applications of the model enable users to:

      • Make the case for family planning financial investments and policy and programmatic improvements
      • Mainstream family planning across development sectors

        Burkina Faso’s National Plan for Accelerating Family Planning 2017–2020 is a strategic costed implementation plan developed with technical support from HP+ with a clear vision, strategic objectives, and plan to achieve national family planning goals. The Ministry of Health, with support of technical and financial partners, developed this roadmap to accelerate efforts around family planning and increase the modern contraceptive prevalence rate to 32 percent by 2020. This plan is intended to contribute to a decline in population growth, improvement of maternal and child health, and economic and social development of the country. It is also a tool for resource mobilization and monitoring and evaluation of the activities proposed.

          Parts of Africa have the most rapid population growth in the world. In addition, recent studies by climatologists suggest that, in coming decades, ecologically vulnerable areas of Africa, including the Sahel, will be exposed to the harshest adverse effects of global warming. Fortunately, there are evidence-based achievable policies which can greatly ameliorate what would otherwise be a slowly unfolding catastrophe of stunning magnitude. But to succeed, such measures must be taken immediately and on a large scale. Taken together, rapid population growth and climate change pose a serious threat to the livelihood of the majority of the one hundred million people now living in the Sahel region and about two hundred million more who will live there in a generation’s time. This paper encourages working across silos to address these interrelated challenges.

            In 2015, member states of the United Nations—including Mali—committed to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by 2030. Two of the SDGs are directly related to family planning and numerous others are impacted by family planning—evidence has shown that modern contraceptive use is linked to improved health outcomes, economic progress, educational attainment, and environmental protection. In Mali, HP+ used the FP-SDGs Model to quantify the benefits of accelerated contraceptive use to help make the case for increased domestic resources for family planning. The results show that if growth in modern contraceptive use is accelerated, progress toward achieving the SDGs would be dramatically boosted. This brief summarizes results and offers actions that stakeholders can consider to accelerate progress on family planning and the SDGs in Mali.

              Several conservation organizations integrate health and family planning with conservation projects. This integration has multiple benefits. Often conservation practitioners recognize the potential value of integrated PHE (population-health-environment) projects, but need guidance on how to effectively incorporate P and H components into their project or on how to create a PHE project from scratch. This manual was created as a resource for these practitioners. It reviews not only the how, but also the why and what of PHE projects. The manual defines PHE as projects that integrate health and/or family planning with conservation activities, thereby seeking synergistic successes and greater conservation and human welfare outcomes than if they were implemented in single-sector approaches.

                Experts in the family planning sector have developed a set of evidence-based practices—known as Family Planning High Impact Practices (HIPs)—that improve family planning and reproductive health program outcomes. HIPs can also be applied in development programs that integrate multiple sectors at the community level, including family planning. This policy brief explores the promising opportunity that exists to expand the use of HIPs within population, health, and environment (PHE) projects.

                  The Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) approach to community development aims to simultaneously improve access and equity to primary health care services, particularly family planning and reproductive health, while also helping communities conserve biodiversity, manage natural resources, and develop sustainable livelihoods. This course will introduce learners to the fundamentals of the PHE approach including PHE relationships, the benefits of integration, program considerations, the PHE policy and advocacy landscape, and how the PHE approach can contribute to global development priorities, such as the Sustainable Development Goals and Family Planning 2020 in an efficient and effective way.
