Representatives from 40 countries will attend the Sixth Asian and Pacific Population Conference from 16-20 September in Bangkok.

The Conference will review the region’s successes, challenges and future priorities in the area of population and development. Its agenda covers a wide range of issues including poverty reduction, sexual and reproductive health and rights, HIV and AIDS, gender equality, youth, ageing, migration, and sustainable development.

Convened by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) in collaboration with UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, the Sixth Asian and Pacific Population Conference (APPC) will be also instrumental in shaping the regional population agenda for the next decade and beyond.

The meeting is expected to adopt a Ministerial Declaration which will serve as the Asia-Pacific input to the United Nations General Assembly special session on the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) beyond 2014.

In the context of a wider UN effort to determine a new global development agenda, the ICPD Beyond 2014 review aims to put the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women, girls and marginalized groups at the heart of future development goals.
