Closing its forty-eighth session this evening, the Commission on Population and Development failed to adopt a draft resolution that had been prepared by its Chair after several days and nights of intense negotiations.

By the draft text, the Commission would have emphasized that population and development issues were interlinked with sustainable development at the subnational, national and international levels, requiring a multi-stakeholder and multi-level approach.

It would have stressed, among other things, that gender equality, the full realization of the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all women and girls, including their reproductive rights, were critical to sustainable development and essential to the realization of social justice.

The draft was not adopted after an exchange between the representatives of Groups of States.
