Family Planning & The Environment
We change global and institutional biodiversity and climate policy, promoting the importance for the conservation of nature of removing barriers to family planning. We design and manage projects integrating family planning and conservation action. We are the only member of the International Union for Conservation of Nature with 50 years’ family planning expertise. We also have Observer Status to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and UN Environment.
Trust advises on BBC Radio 4 climate series
A new BBC Radio Four series, created in partnership with the Royal Geographical Society, focuses on positive solutions to climate change. The Trust advised the Royal Geographical Society on the episode, “Educating and empowering girls”.
Removing barriers to family planning and ensuring high quality education for all are among the most impactful climate actions, whilst also having the best social outcomes. From sea grass meadows to food waste, using wood for construction, to removing barriers to family planning, “39 Ways to Save the Planet” looks at what we can do.
