Based on modern theories analysing the impact of demography on development, the Population and Development Report is aimed at enhancing the understanding of the relation between those two factors, and at increasing awareness of challenges posed by population dynamics and demographic changes. This Report also stresses on the importance of strategic stands that consider population as a qualitative and quantitative variable affecting the economic, social, political and environmental forces. Analysis and recommendations are drawn from experiences of developing countries, especially those in the ESCWA region.
