Sexual and reproductive health and rights in Asia and the Pacific: the unfinished agenda
Rajat Khosla
This paper contains a review of the key trends in sexual and reproductive health and rights in Asia and the Pacific since the adoption of the Programme of Action by the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in 1994. In the paper, key areas of progress, as well as the unfinished agenda and emerging issues in the region are identified and policy recommendations to effectively address them are provided. The paper also contains a discussion on the various barriers to ensuring universal sexual and reproductive health and rights, such as financial, physical and sociocultural barriers, highlighting current deficiencies in health systems across the region. The recommendations to address these challenges focus on reducing disparities in access to a comprehensive and integrated package of sexual and reproductive health services for different population groups, creating an enabling legal and policy framework, measures to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls, and mechanisms to improve monitoring and accountability.

Population and social integration policies in Asia and the Pacific
Ghazy Mujahid
In the present paper, consideration is given to social integration — namely, the extent to which individuals have equal opportunities and rights — in the Asia-Pacific region and how policies can be implemented to achieve this. Although the region is characterized by demographic diversity, there are common challenges across the region as regards enhancing social integration. In order to meet these challenges, rather than just addressing issues of poverty, consideration needs to be given to access to basic services as well as to issues such as stigmatization and discrimination. Population ageing and evolving dependency ratios in the region highlight the need to invest in social protection, which can also act to address social exclusion, such as that faced by children, the unemployed, persons with disabilities and older persons.

Population dynamics and sustainable development in Asia and the Pacific
Adrian Hayes
The present paper contains an analysis of the complex links between population dynamics and sustainable development in Asia and the Pacific that have developed over the last 20 years. Basic changes in population dynamics in the region since 1990 are first described, followed by an examination of critical issues regarding the links between population dynamics and the three defining dimensions of sustainable development, namely economic growth, social justice and environmental sustainability.
