Ethiopia-Family Planning and Environment: Designing Innovation Platforms for Sustainable Health in the Blue Nile Headwaters of Ethiopia

Ethiopia's population is projected to exceed 173 million by 2050. In combination with continued high total fertility rates, Ethiopia is experiencing increasing temperatures, changes in precipitation patterns, and soil erosion and degradation, all reinforcing long-standing patterns of poverty and food insecurity. This project aims to integrate environmental sustainability and family planning priorities by developing and testing an intervention package for Health Extension Workers. The proposed intervention will have the following components: *Separate counseling packages will be developed for 4 or more distinct agro-ecological settings *Leverage established Innovation Platforms (locally developed groups that implement social change) to inform understanding of agro-ecological context and to contribute to the development of counseling and training materials *Agent-based modeling (ABM) will illustrate how different agricultural practices and population structures impact the environment and food production capacity of agro-ecological zones
