UNFPA Releases The State of World Population 2010

On October 20th the United Nations Population Fund released their 2010 State of the World Population Report. The report links peace, security and development to women’s rights and empowerment. It highlights that women who have access to the same rights and opportunities as men are more resilient to conflict and disaster and can play a greater role in reconstruction and renewal efforts of their societies. The report looks at stories of individuals who were affected by conflict or catastrophe in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Haiti, Iraq, Jordan, Liberia, the Occupied Palestinian Territory, Timor-Leste and Uganda.
