This report was prepared to inform the UNECE Regional Conference ‘Enabling Choices: Population Dynamics and Sustainable Development’ (1–2 October 2018, Geneva), which marks the 25th anniversary of the ICPD held in Cairo in 1994. Both the report and the outcome of the conference discussions have the potential to contribute towards more equitable development and prosperity for generations and societies across the UNECE region.



Population dynamics and sustainable development

The 2013 Chair’s summary underscored the need to take a long-term, holistic, rights-based approach to population dynamics and its linkages with sustainable development. In this regard, it called on UNECE member States to invest in human capital across generations by enhancing their citizens’ access to quality education, decent work and health and social care services, promoting healthy lifestyles and supporting their involvement in decision- making. The 2013 Chair’s summary also encouraged member States to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and strive for energy efficiency.
