Population, Health and Environment Indicator Reference Sheet

ABCG recognizes that human population growth contributes to biodiversity loss in sub-Saharan Africa, and at the same time there are positive human health and well-being impacts resulting from biodiversity conservation. In November 2019, the ABCG Population, Health and Environment (PHE) working group convened an expert group to explore the definition of integration with respect to PHE, the various ways to measure integration and approaches to promote integrated PHE successes. Building on the findings from that meeting, this PHE reference sheet is designed to help conservation teams test assumptions and measure progress of integrated PHE projects over time. This tool can also help with potential project design and implementation of integrated cross-sectoral PHE projects.
