    This document reviews Conservation International’s PHE projects in some of the most remote, biologically diverse areas of the world, including the Cardamom Mountains Conservation Landscape (CCL) in southwestern Cambodia, the Zahamena-Mantadia Biological Corridor in eastern Madagascar, and the Sierra Madre Biodiversity Corridor (SMBC) in northern Philippines. CI’s PHE projects achieved results in both health and conservation – such as providing health services; training local health care professionals in health and conservation; promoting behavior change and educating youth about the importance of conservation; and building the capacity to pursue alternative livelihoods through improved forest management. This document demonstrates how CI, and global partners, have worked to improve the lives of remote, vulnerable populations in some of the most biodiversity-rich environments by improving human wellbeing while also conserving vital biodiversity.

      This assessment report presents the experiences of the implementation of the Population, Health and Environment (PHE) projects in the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Regional State (SNNPRS) of Ethiopia. Four zones, four districts/woredas and five kebeles were included in the assessment study. Since the PHE projects in the SNNPRS were focused on the youth group of the population, 447 respondents of the study were all youth (16-24) which were sampled from the five respective study kebeles. A mixed methods research was utilized to generate cross-sectional data/information which intently was made to contain a longitudinal perspective. Multiple instruments of data/information collection were also deployed. Framed on a broader perspective of the PHE approach at global level and in Ethiopia, the report contains various evidences that reveal the extent to which the PHE projects had succeeded, or were impeded, in attaining the purposes for which they were designed.
