Working across sectors to achieve real change

The Population & Sustainable Development Alliance (PSDA) works to strengthen and promote intersectoral approaches to sustainable development that encompass sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), maternal and child health, water and sanitation, livelihood diversification, food security, gender equality, community-based natural resource management, environmental protection and climate change resilience.

Our member organisations are united by their recognition that the challenges faced by people and planet are multifaceted and inextricably linked, and therefore require holistic responses that cut across traditional sectors and silos: we can’t hope to make meaningful progress on any one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) without complementary breakthroughs in other areas, and we can’t effectively build resilience to climate change without addressing unmet family planning needs.

We engage with decision makers at international conferences across the globe, sharing evidence from peer-reviewed literature and the community-based work of PSDA members with the aim of building a more enabling policy and funder environment for the scaling up of rights-based, SRHR-focused, intersectoral approaches to sustainable development.
