Qatar recently chaired a preparatory meeting of the Commission on Population and Development of the United Nations Economic and Social Council.

Sheikha Alia Ahmed bin Saif Al-Thani, Qatar’s permanent representative to the United Nations,



delivered opening remarks at the meeting and highlighted the distinct relationship between economic development and demographics.

Whether a population consists of older or younger people is a statistic that can cause various challenges for economic development, Al-Thani said. Challenges may include the ability to fight poverty and providing education, housing and medical care.

During the meeting, the parties involved examined various population demographic changes worldwide that could impact sustainable development efforts.
