Without the support of trusts and foundations that share our commitment to promoting sustainability and advancing a rights-based approach to population and reproductive health issues we would not be able to do our important work. We, and the partner organisations we work with, are extremely grateful for their crucial help.
We are keen to develop our relationships with foundations and trusts further, building on existing partnerships and creating new ones, to expand our activities and extend our reach even further.
Some foundations and trusts choose to give grants for core costs, covering key activities with network members to work collaboratively across-sectors and share learning to maximise our impact, and strategic planning for new projects and innovation. Other trusts and foundations work with us on particular projects to support specific themes of our work.
Priority programme examples
Current PSN finding priorities include the following programmes:
The Population and Climate Change Alliance (PCCA)
The PCCA brings together a range of population, reproductive health and environmental organizations, including Southern partners, working on the links between population and climate change. We are seeking funding to support a range of activities, including research to identify projects around the world combining population dynamics with climate change and environmental or other broader sustainable development objectives, and joint advocacy initiatives building on the PCCA’s recent work to influence the Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development and the emerging post-15 international development framework.
PSN is looking to expand our work programme which aims to increase awareness of the links between population dynamics and biodiversity. Opportunities to invest in this programme include ongoing activities for the dissemination of the PSN briefing on population and biodiversity and other advocacy initiatives bringing together organisations working on population and health, environment and climate initiatives, including to influence the Sustainable Development Goals and other post-2015 international development processes.
Strengthening the Network
We are looking to expand membership of the network and undertake a range of new activities in order to maximise our impact. Opportunities to add value include contributing to key PSN events and / or sponsor the participation of PSN members from the developing world so that we can demonstrate and extend ownership of our campaigning themes emphasizing the importance of population dynamics to current and emerging international development priorities, and further opportunities to support cross-sector collaborative working with and beyond the network.
Model community investment programmes
PSN supports several model projects demonstrating innovative models of service provision by partner organisations working in communities to increase access to basic health services while simultaneously promoting environmental sustainability. Projects are currently underway in Kenya and Madagascar, and we are looking to support further projects with Southern partners in other countries and areas affected by poor reproductive health, population growth, environmental degradation and climate change. Demonstrating the benefits of an integrated approach to population, health and environmental issues, these projects also encompass research and advocacy elements to disseminate information about good practice and maximise potential for replication elsewhere.
We would be happy to hear from you if you might be interested in one of these programmes which have scope to be tailored according to funder priorities.
PSN fully understands the importance of accurate and timely reporting of our activities that demonstrates the impact and outcomes of our work and that of our partners, which we provide in accordance with the specific requirements of our funders.
