The Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group promotes best practices to link conservation and voluntary family planning activities, supporting communities and policymakers to mitigate impacts and provide compensation for biodiversity loss to deliver positive conservation outcomes. Over the several years, several global programmatic, research and advocacy efforts have advanced the understanding and adoption of strategies to reduce barriers to family planning as an effective conservation strategy, which are critical for Africa.
Please join us for a panel discussion on recent activities relating to global Population, Health and Environment (PHE) with implications for Africa’s biodiversity. Panelists include representatives from the Jane Goodall Institute and Pathfinder International on their experience integrating PHE into community-centered conservation work in Western Tanzania, and ABCG PHE task members Conservation International, with World Wildlife Fund-US and the Jane Goodall Institute.
