The Overpopulation Project is proud to present the first video in our four-part interview mini-series, an interview with Carl Wahren, a population professional with more than 30 years of experience in various multilateral organizations. Carl was a pioneer in introducing family planning programs in developing countries in the 1960’s, programs supported by the government and agencies in Sweden.

In this first video, Carl discusses the general usefulness and efficiency of foreign aid. As former head of the OECD Aid Management Division for almost a decade, he provides valuable insight into the complexity of foreign aid, project monitoring and reporting, and the cross sectoral benefits of family planning aid.

Here at TOP, one of the many solutions we promote is an increase in family planning through foreign aid assistance. But how effective is foreign aid? More specifically, how effective is family planning aid? In the short video below, Carl Wahren answers these and other questions, weighing in on this important ongoing debate.
