Many developing countries and countries with economies in transition face major development obstacles, among which are those related to the persistence of trade imbalances, the slow-down in the world economy, the persistence of the debt-servicing problem, and the need for technologies and external assistance.
Governments, international organizations and non-governmental organizations should ensure that their personnel policies and practices comply with the principle of equitable representation of both sexes, especially at the managerial and policy-making levels, in all programmes, including population and development programmes.

 Need to Monitor Implementation of Cairo Conference by Christine E. Gudorf   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Conference planners were not eager to have the Vatican portrayed as the defender of women against government coercion of women in population programs.
Because the process at Cairo focused on achieving consensus on the ten percent of the draft text to which a few nations dissented (the sections which dealt with abortion, contraception, adolescents, family planning, reproductive health and migrants), the battle lines were drawn before anyone had arrived in Cairo.
Developed nations must be pressed to contribute twenty percent of their foreign aid budgets to implement the social programs of the Cairo ICPD in the developing world, and developing nations to put twenty percent of their national budgets into social spending (health, education, and development).

Source materials used in the study of population; standard procedures for the measurement of fertility, mortality, natural increase, migration, and nuptiality; and uses of model life tables and stable population analysis and other techniques of estimation when faced with inaccurate or incomplete data are studied.
The focus is on population models that have direct application in demography, including survival models, stable and nonstable populations, population projections, and models of marriage and birth.
Approximately half of the course is devoted to development of large-sample theory for nonlinear estimation procedures, while the other half concentrates on application of the methods to econometric models for discrete and limited dependent variables.

 THE FIGHT FOR LIFE FIVE YEARS AFTER CAIRO
The Cairo Conference review process (dubbed Cairo +5) began in earnest this past March with informal preparatory meetings conducted under the auspices of the UN Commission on Population and Development.
This consensus had been achieved by balancing respect for religion, culture, and family with the desire in the West to promote population control with the understanding that the emphasis would be on development and that goals would be achieved without coercion.
Cairo+5 reaffirmed the Cairo Programme of Action with crucial references to national sovereignty, respect for religious, ethical and cultural values; reference to a statement that it created no new human rights; recognition of countries' reservations; and reiteration of language stating that in no case should abortion be promoted as a method of family planning.

 The Cairo Conference on Population and Development
Setting such goals, which are designed to halt population growth as soon as it is humanely possible to do so, then to reverse it, would reveal a massive problem, one that both our own government, and the international community, have been simply unwilling to grapple with.
It should state explicitly that individuals, nations, and international organizations have the responsibility to make their actions and policies consistent with halting world population growth as quickly as is humanely possible.
It is sobering to realize that because of the tremendous momentum of past population growth, and the resulting age structure of world population, we cannot possibly halt population growth before the number of people added to world population (2.2 billion) exceeds the total world population of 1.65 billion at the beginning of the century.
