After Mexico: NGOs and the Follow-Up to the International Conference on Population. Summary Report of the Annual NGO/UNFPA Consultation on Population in New York (4th, Church Centre, New York, March 6, 1985).
Cassidy, Kevin, Ed.
This document consists of three parts. Part I is a summary report of the Fourth Annual Non-Governmental Organizations/United Nations Fund for Population Activities (NGO/UNFPA) Consultation on Population. It includes: an opening statement by David Poindexter; presentations by Bradman Weerakoon ("Opportunities for Action") and Sheldon Segal ("Global Population Realities"); a panel discussion on patterns of NGO action (with panelists Hernan Sanhueza, Barbara Hertz, Kaval Gulhati, Mohammed Satar, and Werner Fornos); reports from eight workshop groups (including groups focusing on population and children, youth, and the aging); additional presentations by Barbara Hertz ("Financing Global Population Programs"), Rafael M. Salas ("Implementation of the Mexico Mandate"), and Werner Fornos ("The Next Major Step"); and biographical information on the speakers. Part II provides recommendations, excerpted from the final report of the 1984 International Conference on population, which specifically refer to NGOs. Part III provides some useful background material for population education. They include excerpts from a UNFPA report titled "The State of World Population 1984" (considering such topics as life expectancy, mortality rates, fertility, and morbidity patterns and causes of death) and a world population chart (presenting, by world and country data on total population, crude birth rate for 1980-85, and other categories).
