This training toolkit aims to increase the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) capacity, skills and knowledge of those who plan, implement, and evaluate integrated health and community development programs in low-resource settings. The toolkit provides managers, technical specialists, and M&E staff with user-friendly, modifiable training components that can be adapted for a specific developing-country and programmatic contexts. The toolkit helps users conduct effective M&E from program inception to indicator selection through assessment design. The toolkit also promotes M&E efforts that highlight the integrated nature of these programs and the unique contributions Population, Health and Environment (PHE) programs make over traditional single-sector efforts. The Training Toolkit Components are:
  • Introduction to PHE M&E Toolkit
  • Training modules, PowerPoint slides including facilitator notes
  • Facilitator notes
  • A Guide for Monitoring and Evaluating Population-Health-Environment Programs

This document describes a computer simulation model that can clarify the dynamic relationships between climate change, food security, and population growth. It is designed to be simple enough to adapt to individual countries to introduce population issues into policy dialogues on adaptation to climate change in the context of food security. The model links a population projection, which takes account of the effects of climate change on agriculture, with a food requirements model that uses Food and Agricultural Organization formulas. Piloted in Ethiopia, the model shows that the food security gap in Ethiopia is expected to be greater with climate change than the food security gap without climate change. It also shows the potential of family planning to address this gap. The report concludes that the model can serve as a starting point for a dialogue about the importance of taking into account population factors when adapting to climate change with regard to food security.

A growing body of evidence indicates that climate change is decreasing the productivity of many crops around the world, thus exacerbating existing food security challenges. Ensuring sufficient food for a growing world population in the context of climate change will require innovative technologies and strategies to boost agricultural yields and improve access to nutritious foods for the world’s poorest people. This brief summarizes new research that demonstrates that slower population growth, achievable by addressing women’s existing needs for family planning, can also play a significant role in promoting future food security in a climate-altered world. The study focused on climate change impacts, food security challenges, and population growth in Ethiopia, and results suggest that meeting women’s existing needs for family planning should be considered in broader strategies for adapting to the impacts of climate change on agriculture.

This document is a guide to effective M&E of integrated PHE projects and serves as a reference for the entire international development community. The guide consists of three parts covering the PHE conceptual framework, guidance on monitoring and evaluation in programs, and a detailed discussion of indicators for population, health, environment, integration and value-added. Starting with an overview and then diving into technical information, the guide covers types of evaluations, data quality and sources, and terminology. PHE indicators are provided and organized into categories for all aspects of a PHE project: population, health, environment, integration, and value-added. These indicators are presented clearly so that they can be adapted to and used for different projects.

Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) programs deliver voluntary family planning, basic health services, environmental management or conservation information, and service interventions to rural communities in a coordinated or integrated fashion. The effective management and execution of these or any projects depend on the ability to define and measure success at several levels. A well-thought-out and implemented monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system provides the information for measuring success. This guide serves as a comprehensive reference for practitioners and provides not only a list of potential indicators but also advice on setting up M&E systems; the addition of livelihoods indicators, and a section on evaluating complex programs.
