    Statement: South Africa.

    Abrahams L

    [Unpublished] 1999. Presented at the United Nations Commission on Population and Development, Thirty-second session, New York, New York, March 22-31, 1999 5, [1] p.

    In this document, the South African delegation, represented by Ms. Luci Abrahams, Director General of the Department of Welfare of South Africa, addresses the 32nd session of the UN Commission on Population and Development. The South African delegation finds the document "Proposals for the Further Implementation of the Program of Action of the ICPD" a particularly useful and forward-looking piece. Population programs, population growth, and the structure of population dynamics in South Africa have largely been driven by a swift demographic transition, especially among the majority African population. The goal of the South African population policy is to change the determinants of the national population dynamics in order that these trends may be consistent with the achievement of sustainable development. In her final statement Ms. Abrahams concludes that the first five years of South Africa's implementation of the Program of Action have largely entailed the creation of an enabling environment through policy formulation.
