Description
To mark the 30th anniversary of the International Year of the Family, the State of Qatar and the Doha International Family Institute (DIFI) the conference will address four major megatrends identified by the United Nations Secretariat, including the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, having a significant impact on families: new technologies; climate change; urbanization and international migration; and demographic change. In addition, the conference will advocate for worldwide support and empowerment of the family system by promoting policies and programs that strengthen families, showcasing best practices and evidence-based research, and providing a forum for policymakers, academics, practitioners, and stakeholders to engage in in-depth discussions on family oriented policies to effectively tackle these megatrends.
