The goal of this project is to strengthen the role of family planning and reproductive health in U.S. foreign policy, with attention to the relationship between family planning and critical foreign policy issues such as economic development, security and stability, the environment, health, and women's empowerment. With the generous support of the UN Foundation, this project convened a study group comprising not only reproductive health experts, but also demographers, business people, former government and military officials, and others who bring a fresh perspective to the field. The project resulted in a report authored by Isobel Coleman and Gayle Lemmon, published in Spring 2011.
