This synthesis report examines and summarizes available evidence from integrated Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) projects to document what they are measuring and/or not measuring, assess the current state of PHE project monitoring and evaluation, and identify gaps in evaluation and research for current and future PHE projects to improve upon. Forty-three documents from 35 projects were reviewed in conducting this synthesis. The report analyzes the available documentation assessing integrated programming’s effectiveness at implementing complementary interventions in the well-established fields of population, health, and the environment. It explores the documentation available from projects across different sectors and thus gives a sense of the current state of monitoring and evaluation within PHE projects. Findings from the synthesis suggest that projects report data and impact in some areas, particularly family planning, consistently.
