Save Money, Lives, and the Earth by Combining Conservation and Family Planning, Say Experts at World Conservation Congress
Date:10/9/2008

BARCELONA, Spain, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Conservation and health organizations should work together to support human development and protect biodiversity hotspots, said experts at the World Conservation Congress on October 8, 2008.

"In the Philippines, food security is threatened by both poverty and population-environment dynamics," said Joan Castro of the Integrated Population and Coastal Resource Management (IPOPCORM) Initiative. "Results showed that IPOPCORM improved the majority of the reproductive health and conservation indicators we measured, supporting our hypothesis that integrated approaches to population and coastal management have a greater impact." http://tinyurl.com/3nonnp
