Yearbook of the United Nations, 2002. Part 3, Economic and social questions. Chapter 8, Population
During 2002, the population activities of the United Nations continued to be guided by the Programme of Action adopted at the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and the key actions for the further implementation of the Programme of Action adopted at the twenty-first special session of the General Assembly in 1999. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the largest internationally funded source of population assistance, was the lead UN Organization for advancing the ICPD Programme of Action. In 2002, the Fund experienced declining programme resources with the loss of $34million from a major donor. However, it received unprecedented support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)/UNFPA Executive Board, and from the grass-roots campaign“34MillionFriends”. The Fund also recorded one of its highest levels in programme expenditure, spending $203.6 million on country and intercountry programmes. The Fund's transition plan, enacted in 2001 with the aim of developing a strategic vision of UNFPA's goals and of providing greater support to the field, was completed in December. The Commission on Population and Development, in April, considered the central theme of reproductive rights and reproductive health, with special reference to HIV/AIDS, and adopted a resolution on the subject. Other matters before the Commission included financial resources to implement the ICPD Programme of Action, world population monitoring and the activities of the UN Population Division. The Population Division continued to analyse world demographic trends and policies. New publications included the International Migration Report 2002 and HIV/ AIDS Awareness and Behaviour.
