Family Planning and Resilience: Associations found in a Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) Project in Western Tanzania

This study supports the importance of including Family Planning /Maternal and Child Health as part of integrated projects to enhance resilience. The paper identifies components of resilience that could be measured in Population Health and the Environment (PHE) and other integrated development projects, and uses data from a PHE project in western Tanzania to measure resilience and better understand the links between resilience and family planning.

The research aims to establish which factors contribute to resilience in the project area, with the ultimate goal of understanding how to build potential resilience among people in ecologically rich regions who rely on natural resources for their livelihoods.
