World Population Day 2009

  1. 1. This year’s annual World Population Day is the 20th annual World Population Day. The Day’s inception in 1989 by the then UNDP Governing Council prompted its endorsement by the United Nations General Assembly as an opportunity to build better awareness of population issues and their relation to development.
  2. 2. The 2009 WPD theme is “Responding to the Economic Crisis: Investing in Women is a Smart Choice”.
  3. 3. “Responding to the Economic Crisis: Investing in Women is a Smart Choice”. “Responding to the Economic Crisis: Investing in Women is a Smart Choice”.
  4. 4. UNFPA Executive Director, Thoraya Ahmed Obaid. “Now more than ever, in these times of global economic crisis, I call on decision-makers to increase resources for reproductive health, including family planning, so we can make greater progress for women and families. There is no smarter investment, with such high economic and social returns, than investing in the health and rights of adolescent girls and women.”
  5. 5. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon “The global financial crisis is forcing all of us to save and cut costs where we can. But our work for the women of the world must continue undiminished. When you empower a woman, you empower a family. When you empower a woman, you change the world.”
  6. 6. • No one knows yet what the full scale of current global economic crisis will look like. We do know that women and children in developing countries will bear the brunt of the impact. • What started as a financial crisis in rich countries is now deepening into a global economic crisis that is hitting developing countries hard. It is already affecting progress toward reducing poverty.
  7. 7. • Policy responses that build on women's roles as economic agents can do a lot to mitigate the effects of the crisis on development, especially because women, more than men, invest their earnings in the health and education of their children.
  8. 8. • Investments in public health, education, child care and other social services help mitigate the impact of the crisis on the entire family and raise productivity for a healthier economy.
  9. 9. • Investments in education and health for women and girls have been linked to increases in productivity, agricultural yields, and national income — all of which contribute to the achievement of the MDGs [Millenium Development Goals].
  10. 10. • Investments by governments worldwide have raised school enrolment rates, narrowed the gender gap in education, brought life-saving drugs to people living with AIDS, expanded HIV prevention, delivered bed nets to prevent malaria, and improved child health through immunization.
  11. 11. KEY CONCEPTS 1. Women and the economic crisis 2. Protect progress towards Millennium Development Goals 3. Women are economic agents 4. Family planning is smart investment 5. Women migrant workers among most vulnerable
  12. 12. MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS
  13. 13. MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are eight goals to be achieved by 2015 that respond to the world's main development challenges. The MDGs are drawn from the actions and targets contained in the Millennium Declaration adopted by 189 Member States during the UN Millennium Summit in September 2000.
  14. 14. MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS The eight MDGs break down into quantifiable targets that are measured by indicators. Goal 1: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger Goal 2: Achieve universal primary education Goal 3: Promote gender equality and empower women Goal 4: Reduce child mortality Goal 5: Improve maternal health Goal 6: Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases Goal 7: Ensure environmental sustainability Goal 8: Develop a Global Partnership for Development
  15. 15. MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS At the 2005 World Summit, the largest- ever gathering of world leaders reaffirmed the need to keep gender equality, HIV andAIDS and reproductive health at the top of the development agenda. Subsequently, additional targets including universal access to reproductive health by 2015 and related indicators were added to the Millennium Development Goals.
  16. 16. MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS MDG5: Improve Maternal Health Target 5.A: Reduce by three quarters, between 1990 and 2015, the maternal mortality ratio 5.1 Maternal mortality ratio 5.2 Proportion of births attended by skilled health personnel Target 5.B: Achieve, by 2015, universal access to reproductive health 5.3 Contraceptive prevalence rate 5.4 Adolescent birth rate 5.5 Antenatal care coverage (at least one visit and at least four visits) 5.6 Unmet need for family planning
