Celebrating World Population Day 2019: ICPD at 25 years

 

World Population Day seeks to focus attention on the urgency and importance of population issues, established as the Day the world population reached 5 Billion on 11 July 1987.

It is the most important day in the UNFPA calendar, taking on extra significance this year when we mark the 50th anniversary of UNFPA’s founding, as well as the 25th anniversary of the Programme of Action that emerged from the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, which has served as the foundation for all that UNFPA does the world over.
