The Population and Sustainable Development Alliance (PSDA) came together last month at the International Conference on Family Planning 2013 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to take part in an important yet overlooked dialogue for the post-2015 development framework.
PSDA held a side-event entitled, 'Population, Family Planning and Sustainability Links: Voices from the South’ which explored the relationships between population dynamics, sexual and reproductive health and rights, and sustainable development issues, from the perspectives of voices from the Global South.
