The mission of ECLAC in the area of population and development is to increase and enhance the ability of the region’s countries to describe, analyse, comprehend and address population dynamics and their links to economic and social development, with a view to incorporating demographic factors into public policies and programmes, especially those aimed at reducing poverty and inequality. To achieve its strategic objective, the Division has received extensive support from organizations of the United Nations system, especially the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and other donors.
The third meeting of the Presiding Officers of the Regional Conference on Population and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean will be held at ECLAC headquarters in Santiago from 4 to 6 October 2016. The purpose of the meeting, among others, is to analyze and adopt the proposed format for national progress reports on the implementation of the Montevideo Consensus on Population and Development as well as to review the progress report of the ad hoc working group for the preparation of a proposal on the indicators for regional follow-up of the Montevideo Consensus on Population and Development.
The objective of the workshop is to train participants in the creation of
Redatam databases and the development of data dissemination web applications
so that they can later incorporate what was learned in their respective
countries and offices.
El curso está dirigido a profesionales con título o grado universitarios,
preferentemente vinculados a los organismos productores de estadísticas y
análisis censal de los países de América Latina y el Caribe.

Las instituciones públicas son el marco social para la acción y constituyen
instrumentos fundamentales para la implementación nacional de los Objetivos
de Desarrollo Sostenible. En el caso de las personas mayores —como en el de
otros grupos en condición de vulnerabilidad—, son el acuerdo político que
abre las puertas del Estado a sus demandas, intereses y necesidades.
