Foreword

In September 1994, the international community adopted the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development by consensus. The Programme of Action put people at the centre of sustainable development and emphasized that protecting human rights, investing in health and education, advancing gender equality and empowering women are crucial to improving the quality of life of all people. The Conference galvanized action at the national, regional and international levels, resulting in greater attention to issues of sustainability and improvements in the well-being of people around the world.
