Family Planning & The Environment

We have made a Family Planning 2030 Commitment, which includes increasing the number of policies and publications recognising the critical importance of the removal of barriers to family planning as a pillar of climate and biodiversity action. We will achieve this by using our unique status as the only organisation with our contraception and sexual health expertise which is also a member of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), with Observer Status of both the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) and which is accredited by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
