  • World Population, Day 11 July


    World Population, Day 11 July

    "The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is the world’s blueprint for a better future for all on a healthy planet. On World Population Day, we recognize that this mission is closely interrelated with demographic trends including population growth, ageing, migration and urbanization." UN Secretary-General António Guterres.
    This year's World Population Day calls for global attention to the unfinished business of the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development. Twenty-five years have passed since that landmark conference, where 179 governments recognized that reproductive health and gender equality are essential for achieving sustainable development.
    In November, UNFPA, together with the governments of Kenya and Denmark, will be convening a high-level conference in Nairobi to accelerate efforts to achieve these unmet goals. On World Population Day, advocates from around the world are calling on leaders, policymakers, grassroots organizers, institutions and others to help make reproductive health and rights a reality for all.

    Dear reader, you have in your hands the Bulletin corresponding to the second quarter of 2019. In this you will find, the web created for the celebration of the centenary of the ILO. This Organization, was born in 1919 as part of the Treaty of Versailles that ended with the First World War, and reflected the conviction that social justice is essential to achieve universal and permanent peace. The force behind the creation of the ILO was prompted by humanitarian, political, economic and security considerations. In synthesizing them, the Preamble of the Constitution of the ILO points out that the High Contracting Parties are "moved by feelings of justice and humanity, as well as by the desire to ensure permanent peace in the world ...". These principles inspire us 100 years later to be able to make a reality of having a more just, freer, more peaceful world.
    Along the same lines, we would like to highlight the reference that the reader will find in this Bulletin to the United Nations Peacekeeping Ministerial Meeting for the year 2019, held on March 29, 2019 at the United Nations headquarters in New York. York
    These are two examples that help to maintain the hope and desire for the United Nations to continue to be strengthened. Together with them, as always, the reader will find in this Bulletin some of the activities and information points of the United Nations in many other areas. Our small contribution to such a high goal is to spread that activity with punctuality and to put our work at the service of all those who want to contribute to this necessary task.
    As always, we end by asking them to continue helping us in our ongoing reflection, sending us their criticisms, suggestions or proposals so that we are up to what society and the United Nations are demanding of us.
