Asia-Pacific population and development report 2023

The Asia-Pacific Population and Development Report 2023 was prepared in conjunction with the Seventh Asian and Pacific Population Conference (APPC). It brings together the latest evidence on the priority actions of the Asian and Pacific Ministerial Declaration on Population and Development (APMD), with a particular focus on SDG indicators. It also presents good practices and lessons learned identified by member States and civil society organizations, based on responses to the voluntary national APPC survey and informed by research findings on key population and development issues. Moreover, it provides forward-looking recommendations to guide the continuing implementation of APMD and the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development in Asia and the Pacific. The report is intended as a resource to support countries in the region in developing inclusive and sustainable population and development policies and guiding discourse on the topic.
