Arab Regional Conference on Population and Development

Civil Society team leader Mahmoud Nabulsi is participating in the Arab Regional Conference on Population and Development: Five Years after the 2013 Cairo Declaration in Beirut, Lebanon from 30 October until 1 November, 2018. The conference is hosted by the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), the UN Population Fund Arab States Regional Office (UNFPA-ASRO), and the League of Arab States (LAS).

The participants will focus on the five-year review of the 2013 Cairo Declaration: achievements, challenges, ways to accelerate progress, and links with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Cairo Declaration highlights several priority areas for the Arab region including gender equality and women’s empowerment, youth, sexual and reproductive health, international migration, internal displacement and large refugee movements, and environmental sustainability.

Mahmoud will be part of a panel discussion on "Ensuring a life of Dignity for All: Empowering Priority Socio-Demographic Groups,” during which he will represent the voice of Arab youth.

The conference will bring together representatives of governmental institutions, including ministers and high-level officials, in addition to parliamentarians, representatives of civil society organisations, regional organisations, UN agencies, academics, experts, media and other stakeholders.
