UK’s cut to overseas family planning aid ‘very disappointing’

Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta is quoted regarding his review into the “economics of biodiversity”.

Sir Dasgupta in February published a landmark review into the “economics of biodiversity” – how the world can find value in nature instead of profiting from its destruction.

In the Independent he says the UK’s decision to cut the amount it spends on aid for family planning overseas is “very disappointing”.

The review notes growing human populations have significant implications for our demands on nature and that there had been significant underinvestment in family planning programmes.
