Population and the Future: From Bucharest (1974) to Mexico City (1984). Summary Report of the United Nations Fund for Population Activities Briefing for Non-Governmental Organizations in New York (2nd, New York, New York, February 16, 1983).
De Vel Muller, Robert
The major objectives of this briefing are to inform non-governmental organizations (NGOs) of population problems and progress worldwide and to provide information on the International Conference on Population to be held in Mexico City in 1984. The bulk of the report summarizes the group meetings and followup discussions held to examine four major themes that will be focused on at the upcoming Mexico City conference. Topics include fertility and the family; population distribution, immigration, and development; population, resources, environment, and development; and mortality and health policy. Other papers presented discuss the World Population Plan of Action, United Nations policies and programs, CONGO's role, and the challenge to the NGOs. Biographical information on speakers is provided. (RM)
