16:30 W3 Population, Development and Reproductive Health / Agriculture and Food for Development
Invite you to a policy briefing: Clean water linked to rising birth rates in Africa.
Mhairi Gibson, anthropologist at the University of Bristol, will explain why development initiatives must consider women’s reproductive health and services A question and answer session will follow. Policy Briefing: Bristol University carried out a study on rural development intervention, which involved installing clean water taps in rural Ethiopian villages. This had dramatic effects on women’s lives; however, contrary to the expectations of development policy-makers, the results of the intervention have not all been positive. We identified that improving health conditions can introduce higher birth rates and potentially dangerous local population growth. This demonstrates the need for culturally appropriate family planning and reproductive services to be combined with other forms of development intervention.
