The Asia-Pacific Population and Development Report 2023 has been prepared in conjunction with the Seventh Asian and Pacific Population Conference, held in Bangkok and online from 15 to 17 November 2023.

The report brings together the latest evidence on the priority actions of Asian and Pacific Ministerial Declaration on Population and Development (APMD), with a particular focus on SDG indicators. There are also good practices and lessons learned by member States and civil society organizations, based on responses to the voluntary national Asian and Pacific Population Conference survey and research findings on key population and development issues.

Furthermore, it provides specific forward-looking recommendations to guide the continuing implementation of APMD and the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development in Asia and the Pacific.

The report is intended as a resource and guide to support countries in developing future inclusive and sustainable population and development policies.

The report is structured according to the following 11 priority actions identified in APMD:

• Poverty eradication and employment

• Sexual and reproductive health, services and rights

• Education

• Gender equality and women’s empowerment
