5 Sep 2019 -  Side event to the UNDP/UNFPA/UNOPS Executive Board Second Regular Session (UNFPA segment).
Today’s world is more demographically diverse than ever before, bringing new challenges and creating opportunities. This ‘What’s changed’ conversation will delve into changing demographics as a driver for sustainable growth, poverty reduction, and human capital development. It will bring together representatives from different regions to reflect on the demographic transition and discuss how countries can respond to their needs by making the right investments in sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), gender equality and youth empowerment. The conversation will set the stage for the signature session on demographic dividend and diversity that will take place at the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 in November.
