Population and development

Over the past biennium the activities of CELADE-Population Division of ECLAC have been guided by mandates arising from international agreements, especially the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing. Regarding to the latter, CELADE-Population Division of ECLAC helped to promote the proposal for a convention on the rights of older persons by providing, as technical secretariat for the Regional Intergovernmental Conference on Ageing in Latin America and the Caribbean, substantial support to the Governments of Argentina, Brazil and Chile for the organization of follow-up meetings on the Brasilia Declaration: Outcome of the Second Regional Intergovernmental Conference on Ageing in Latin America and the Caribbean (December 2007). The fifteenth anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development in 2009 was of special significance for ECLAC. As part of the commemoration, a comprehensive report was prepared and a regional seminar organized on progress in implementing the Programme of Action in the region, with the support of UNFPA.
