Work on population and food security has been identified as one of the priority areas of the Sustainable Development Department, in order to meet the requirements of the World Food Summit Plan of Action, of which population issues are an integral part. SD's activities focus on the interrelations between population dynamics, biophysical environment and socio-economic and cultural factors with sustainable development as the overarching aim.
"Population" is understood in a broad manner, as in the Programme of Action of the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD).
