Gender equality is a fundamental human right and an integral part of holistic social and economic growth and development. This noble goal can be achieved through acknowledging the intricate relationship between gender equality, sexual and reproductive health and rights, family planning, health and climate change, the most significant economic and social threat of this century. According to the 2023 Population and Vulnerability report by the Population Institute, Uganda is the 13th amongst the 80 most vulnerable nations in the world facing climate-induced events. They include, but are not limited to, prolonged droughts, floods, landslides, wind storms, hail storms and lightning, whose severity and frequency has increased over the past 10 years. These events are a result of, amongst other things, the unplanned production and consumption patterns occasioned by the demands of a very fast-growing population whose livelihood depends on the climate sensitive sectors. The country is experiencing one of the most rapid population growth rates in the world projected to rise from 48.6 million to date to over 90 million in the next 25 years.

In 2022, Knowledge SUCCESS collaborated with 128 Collective (formerly Preston-Werner Ventures) and USAID, to conduct a rapid stock-taking exercise to document the sustained impact of a cross-sectoral integrated Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) project. That exercise resulted in a learning brief that shares the lessons and learnings about scale-up and sustainability of the Health of People and Environment-Lake Victoria Basin (HoPE-LVB) project activities in Kenya and Uganda since project closure in 2019.

Webinar panelists, representing community groups, organizations, networks, and government, shared their unique experiences on how HoPE-LVB activities have continued and been adapted from their perspective.

Discussions around climate change and sexual and reproductive health rarely occur in the same spaces, despite ever growing evidence showing that they should. Climate change threatens human health and rights—and has a disproportionate effect on the most vulnerable girls and women, in all their intersecting identities. True climate justice is not possible without considering gender equality—and true gender equality is only possible when sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) are fully realized. To be ready to deliver in a crisis, governments, donors, and development actors need to lead emergency preparedness for SRHR.

Ahead of COP26, the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, this timely virtual event convened a diverse group of member states, UN entities, civil society organizations, and other key stakeholders to drive evidence-based dialogue and critical action on the under-discussed yet urgent need to integrate SRHR in gender responsive strategies to adapt to climate change.

The USAID Population, Health and Environment (PHE) Integration Activity in Madagascar (2017-2019) was led by JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. under the USAID Advancing Partners & Communities (APC) Project and USAID’s Community Capacity for Health Program. The PHE Integration Activity in Madagascar had the objective of studying, documenting, and promoting the effective integration of PHE activities with the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, the Ministry of Public Health, and the Ministry of Population, Social Protection and Promotion of Women, and other stakeholders in Madagascar. The PHE Integration Activity ended in 2019, however the USAID Community Capacity for Health Program in Madagascar continued family planning, child health and monitoring and evaluation work in the same geographic areas.

The USAID Community Capacity for Health Program—known in Madagascar as Mahefa Miaraka—was a five-year (2016–2021) community-based integrated health program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The Program was a collaborative effort among the Ministry of Public Health, USAID, and JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. Mahefa Miaraka provided tools and capacity-building training to approximately 10,000 community health volunteers who provided basic maternal health, child health, and family planning services to their local communities.

Family Planning High Impact Practices (HIPs) are a set of evidence-based practices developed by experts in the family planning sector that improve family planning and reproductive health outcomes. This webinar, hosted by the PACE (Policy, Advocacy, and Communication Enhanced for Population and Reproductive Health) project and the Implementing Best Practices Initiative Secretariat, explores how HIPs can be applied in development programs that integrate multiple sectors at the community level, including family planning.
