Strengthening capacity to build demographic factors into national sustainable development policies

Improving institutions to build demographic factors into local sustainable development programmes
Enhancement of the capacity of national, regional and local structures to deal with issues relating to demographic trends and factors and to sustainable development would involve strengthening the relevant bodies responsible for population issues to enable them to elaborate policies consistent with the national prospects for sustainable development. Cooperation among government, national research institutions, non-governmental organizations and local communities in assessing problems and evaluating policies would also need to be enhanced.
Population assistance should be coordinated with bilateral and multilateral donors to ensure that population needs and requirements of all developing countries are addressed, fully respecting the overall coordinating responsibility, and the choice and strategies of the recipient countries.
