Devex covers Network: How family planning can help save cheetahshttp://populationandsustainability.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/cheetah-950.jpg
On 18 June 2018 Devex, the leading media platform for the global development community, published a lengthy piece on the work of the Population & Sustainability Network. In Sophie Edwards’ article she wrote about not only the policy work of recent Network member, the Cheetah Conservation Fund, and Network coordinator, the Margaret Pyke Trust, but also more broadly on the Population Health & Environment conservation model, and the appointment by the Trust of Robert Engelman. Robert is a renowned environmental and demography expert, and his substantial experience gained at the United Nations Population Fund, PAI, Population Institute, and Worldwatch Institute will only further enhance the ability of the Trust and wider Population & Sustainability Network to advance the Population, Health & Environment agenda.
