For well over three decades, dozens of community-based development and conservation projects experimented with a seemingly unlikely innovation: combining efforts to help communities manage and conserve their natural resource base with efforts to improve their health and access to family planning information and services. These projects came about as conservation or community development projects focusing on natural resource management found that women came forward and asked for help to plan pregnancies and improve their communities’ health. Conservation, community development, and health nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) then took the initiative to create programs linking health and conservation. These programs evolved into the current generation of population, health, and environment projects, or PHE projects as they are now more commonly known.
