The report on population trends in the UN Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) region was commissioned to supplement government and civil society information with academic research.
The report by POP and the Wittgenstein Centre analyzed recent population trends related to the agenda of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD).
Thirty-six policy recommendations were made based on four "hot questions":
Most of the recommendations are appropriate for all countries in the UNECE region as immediate policy initiatives or future policy goals.
An objective of the report is to improve policymakers' and development practitioners' understanding of emerging population issues and their role in social-economic development. Data collected, analysed and presented in the report (together with the best practices) can be used to support policy development at national and regional level.
