Ministerial dialogue 3: GENDER EQUALITY & FAMILY-FRIENDLY POLICIES

We need to look at gender equality if we are to understand demographic resilience and population dynamics. Gender equality affects how people live, how they make decisions about their families, careers and their well-being. It is a prerequisite for the health and development of families and societies, a driver of economic growth and a key contributor to sustainable development.

Ministerial dialogue 4: ASPIRATIONS, ANXIETIES AND ATTITUDES OF YOUNG PEOPLE

When young people can see that there is a future and that their career goals are reachable, they stay, build families and contribute to the societies where they live. Fulfilling the rights of young people will be of paramount concern in the decades ahead.
