PSN has contributed to a position paper on population dynamics in the post-2015 development agenda by the global civil society campaign Beyond2015.
The paper recognizes that population dynamics and sexual and reproductive health and rights will have a major impact on the post-2015 development agenda and the achievement of socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable development.
Providing an overview of the significance of various population dynamics, including population growth, migration, urbanization and ageing the paper argues that population dynamics determine the size and shape of development challenges.
A comprehensive list of recommendations are made for addressing population dynamics in the post-2015 agenda in ways that respect and protect human rights.
The briefing is part of a series of papers developed by the Beyond2015 campaign, focusing on each of the post-2015 thematic consultation areas.
PSN is a member of the Beyond2015 campaign and PSN’s Sarah Fisher contributed to the paper as a member of the drafting committee.
