(October 2015) This working paper by the Evidence Project synthesizes the available research from the latest generation of population, health, and environment (PHE) projects, providing a detailed account of the benefits of integrated projects and gaps in the evidence base. "The Impact of Population, Health, and Environment Projects: A Synthesis of the Evidence" reviews reports from almost 40 integrated projects. This synthesis provides donors, researchers, advocates, and practitioners with a range of ideas for guiding the next generation of integrated projects in collecting the evidence to support population, health, and environment integration.
In this webinar recorded on Oct. 14, Karen Hardee, senior associate and project director of the Evidence Project at the Population Council, provided the context for why the synthesis was conducted. Kristen P. Patterson, senior policy analyst at the Population Reference Bureau, presented key findings from the report. Clive Mutunga, Population, Environment, and Development technical adviser, USAID Bureau for Global Health, served as a discussant and reflected on what the results mean for next steps in implementing and scaling up the PHE approach.
The presentation was followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
This webinar was co-hosted by the Evidence Project and the Population Reference Bureau.
