Mobilizing Environmental Organizations to Support Family Planning

Population growth, is pushing—or has surpassed—the limits of sustainability; it remains a major factor in the alarming decline of global biodiversity, and threatens the quality of life we seek for ourselves, our descendants, and all people of the planet. The Foundation currently supports high leverage international population projects with advocacy components to influence policy makers and opinion leaders. Additionally, our funds support the creation of approaches to raising awareness about family planning and reproductive health. Over the two past decades, the Foundation has supported such efforts in Nepal, Mexico, and throughout South America.
