International Conference on Population and Development - ICPD

ICPD Plan of Action beyond 2014







The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) prepares a global report on the State of the World’s Population annually to sensitise policy makers, planners, community leaders and the population at large on priority issues affecting the structure and dynamics of the global population. To achieve this objective, UNFPA collaborates with different member States of the United Nations to organise a simultaneous launch of the report in different countries. It is in this context that this year’s report will be launched globally on 14 November 2014.

This year’s theme is “The power of 1.8 billion: adolescents, youth and the transformation of the future.” Young people matter. They matter because an unprecedented 1.8 billion youth are alive today and because they are shapers and leaders of our global future. Yet in a world of adult concerns, young people are often overlooked. This tendency cries out for urgent attention.

The report will be launched at Saint Georges Hotel and Convention Centre, Tshwane on Tuesday, 18 November 2014. The launch will give the youth an opportunity to engage with the Minister on issues affecting them, especially. Click here for the report.

The Minister of Social Development Hon. Bathabile Dlamini will deliver a key-note address, engage with young people on various matters affecting them such as education, unemployment, sexual and reproductive health and launch State of World Population 2014 report.

The President of the Union of African Population Studies (UAPS) Dr. Jean-Franḉois Kobiane, will announce the UAPS conference that will be held in South Africa in 2015. The National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) will make a presentation on investing in youth as they are the global future.
