An Assessment of the Benefits of Integrating Family Planning and Environmental Management Activities in the Visayas Region of the Philippines
The purpose of the research presented here is to further evaluate whether the integrated delivery of reproductive health and environmental management practices in one project results in added value. Finn (2007:19-20) defines value-added as “results across two or more sectors (e.g. reproductive health and coastal environmental management) in such a way that outcomes go beyond those anticipated if the interventions had been implemented separately.” Here, value-added is defined as meaning that the integration of the reproductive health and environmental management components will enhance the levels of success of each to the extent that their levels of achievement will be greater than if the projects were delivered separately.
