When: Wednesday, Nov. 18 16:00-17:00 East Africa Time/8:00-9:00 EST

PRB has collaborated with partners in Tanzania to advance integrated population, health, and environment approaches to development since the launch of the first Tanzania National Population Health, and Environment (PHE) Network in 2007 and the publication of a policy brief focusing on the history and potential of PHE in Tanzania. This webinar will highlight new developments across the country that are boosting cross-sectoral collaboration.

Please join us to explore how government, academia, and civil society in Tanzania are embracing multisectoral approaches to development through population, environment, and development (PED) initiatives to preserve wild spaces and enhance people’s health and livelihoods. Featured speakers will share how these initiatives in Tanzania provide a model for sustainability and national investment in multisectoral development through flagship PED projects, PED training for local students, and commitment to a national-level strategy for integrated development.
