Background

The Vice-Chair reminded HLCP that CEB, at its second regular session in 2011, requested the Committee to carry out detailed work on population dynamics. At its last session, HLCP established a time-bound inter-agency working group, co-chaired by UNFPA and UN-DESA, and tasked the group with developing a set of tools and best practices that might help agencies build their capacity to integrate population dynamics in their work at all levels for consideration by HLCP at its 26th session. The inter-agency group had prepared a note on progress achieved to date which had been distributed to HLCP members in advance of the current session.

Action

HLCP took note of progress achieved by the inter-agency working group, co-chaired by UNFPA and UN-DESA, and agreed to revert to the issue at its 26th session.
