Family planning helps women … and slows climate change

Recent research suggests that simply meeting the existing "unmet need"of global family planning would deliver up to one-seventh of the carbon reductions essential to slow global warming at a low cost. With women empowered to plan their pregnancies, the world's population grows more slowly, as do carbon emissions.
Providing women with family planning services they want and need is deemed to be  benefitial for the health of families throughout the world.  In the country of Uganda  Family Health International (FHI), an NGO working with Uganda's ministry of health, began providing family planning services to help increase women's empowerment and provide essential services, however challenges still arise in meeting the existing unment need of global family planning.
