Population and Development
The International Conference on Population and Development met in Egypt in 1994 to construct an action plan for population control in the coming decades. Varying religious beliefs about family planning disrupted the Conference. That issue had to be tabled before the members could agree on the direction to be taken in the immediate future.
The Vienna s5.50 represents enhanced roles and socio-economic status for women and the changes in family size as status improves. The s7 finishes with an overview of the interrelationships between population development, environment, and related matters.
