FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MEASURE Evaluation, a USAID-funded project, supports improvements in
monitoring and evaluation population, health and nutrition worldwide.
Please find announcements of upcoming workshops and new publications below.

*Announcement*

MEASURE Evaluation is looking for examples of field application of
supportive supervision/facilitation techniques to monitoring and evaluation
of community-based health programs. Selected case studies will be
included in a case study and recommendations document to illustrate how to
use supportive supervision with community-based HIV programs so as
strengthen programs’ collection and use of routine monitoring information.
Please contact Jessica Fehringer at jessica_f@unc.edu if you have an
example to share. Note that examples are not limited to HIV programs and
can cover any health topic area. Please provide a brief summary of the
example in your contact email.

*Modeling Climate Change, Food Security, and Population *<
http://goo.gl/zHzSb>* *

We developed a computer simulation model to help clarify the dynamic
relationships between climate change, food security, and population growth.
The aim was to develop a model that would be simple enough to adapt to a
country and that could be used at the policy level to introduce population
issues into the dialogue on adaptation to climate change in the context of
food security. The resulting model links a population projection, a
sophisticated economic model that takes account of the effects of climate
change on agriculture, and a food requirements model that uses Food and
Agricultural Organization formulas.

*Mortality in Mozambique: Results from a 2007–2008 Post-Census Mortality
Survey *<http://goo.gl/pZOSn>* *

This report presents key findings from the Inquérito Sobre Causas de
Mortalidade (INCAM) regarding leading causes of death in Mozambique by
basic demographic characteristics, including area of residence, age group,
sex and other characteristics, such as the use of health services prior to
death.



*Improving Access to Family Planning Can Promote Food Security in a
Changing Climate *<http://goo.gl/6tvpp>

A growing body of evidence indicates that climate change is decreasing the
productivity of many crops around the world, thus exacerbating existing
food security challenges. New research in Ethiopia demonstrates that slower
population growth, achievable by addressing women’s existing needs for
family planning, can play a significant role in promoting future food
security in a climate-altered world.
