Check out the site & book Drawdown.  [https://www.drawdown.org/solutions-summary-by-rank](https://www.drawdown.org/solutions-summary-by-rank) "Family Planning" is in the top-10 overall solutions as listed. "Securing women’s right to voluntary, high-quality family planning around the world would have powerful positive impacts on the health, welfare, and life expectancy of both women and their children. It also can affect greenhouse gas emissions. 225 million women in lower-income countries say they want the ability to choose whether and when to become pregnant but lack the necessary access to contraception. The need persists in some high-income countries as well, including the United States where 45 percent of pregnancies are unintended. Currently, the world faces a $5.3 billion funding shortfall for providing the access to reproductive healthcare that women say they want to have."
