Asia-Pacific Population Journal

For over two decades, the Asia-Pacific Population Journal (APPJ) has been taking the pulse of population and social issues unfolding in the region. Published by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), APPJ brings out high quality, evidence-based and forward-looking articles relevant for population policies and programmes in Asia and the Pacific. Prominent population experts, award-winning demographers, as well as lesser known researchers have been contributing articles, documenting over the years the evolution of thinking in this important sphere.


A young person’s perspective on population reproductive health and the ICPD

My name is Jacque, I come from Fiji and I am 23 years of age. In addition to being a university student I have been a youth advocate/volunteer for several years now in different capacities. I would first like to congratulate all the players driving the ICPD agenda – I can imagine that the process has not been an easy one, trying to translate recommendations into actions and ensuring that those actions have an impact on the ground. Today’s review, 15 years after the adoption of the ICPD Programme of Action really displays commitment and perseverance of the people and organizations driving the ICPD agenda. As a peer of mine back home used to say – we need to “walk on, walk strong”. Walk on, walk strong.
