Summary

At its twenty-seventh session, the Population Commission (a) reviewed the action taken by the United Nations to implement the recommendations of the World Population Conference, 1974, (b) reviewed programme implementation and the proposed programme of work for the biennium 1994-1995 and (c) considered the follow-up to the recommendations of the International Conference on Population, 1984.

The Commission held a general debate, during which members exchanged views and national experiences in the area of population. Information was exchanged related to demographic trends, population policies and programmes, the integration of population and development, and international cooperation and assistance. The general debate provided a useful context for a further review of current trends and policies at the regional and global levels, with a special discussion on refugees. The Commission did not recommend any action on that issue. The Commission was also informed that the draft report of the Secretary- General on the fourth review and appraisal of the World Population Plan of Action (A/CONF.171/PC/3) had been completed and would be discussed by the Preparatory Committee for the International Conference on Population and Development at its third session.

The Commission reviewed programme implementation and the programme of work for the biennium 1994-1995, which had been reviewed by the Committee for Programme and Coordination, the Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions and the Fifth Committee, and endorsed by the General Assembly in its resolution 48/228 A. It recommended that the Economic and Social Council adopt a draft resolution concerning the regular programme of work to be carried out during the biennium 1994-1995 by the Population Division of the Department for Economic and Social Information and Policy Analysis.

The Commission considered the follow-up to the recommendations of the International Conference on Population, 1984. It reviewed the activities of the United Nations in the field of population, the monitoring of multilateral population assistance and the work of intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations in implementing the World Population Plan of Action. As in previous sessions, the focus was on the coordination of population activities. The Commission did not recommend any action on the issue.
