Population, Health, Environment

IPPF seeks to raise awareness about the connections between population dynamics, reproductive health, the environment and sustainable development. Population dynamics are of critical importance to sustainable development, which can be advanced through accelerated progress towards sexual and reproductive health and rights.

We promote and increase political and financial support for integration of universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights into wider policy and programme development as a means of increasing resilience, advancing environmental sustainability and improving human health and well-being.

We work to foster constructive and accurate dialogue among policy-makers and civil society about population dynamics, climate change and other sustainable development issues, and to counter misinformation or oversimplification of these complex but critical relationships.

IPPF is a member of and works closely with the Population and Sustainability Network Members and the Population and Sustainable Development Alliance (PSDA).
