The Regional Conference on Population and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean ended on August 15, 2013 after country delegates agreed upon a groundbreaking document the “Montevideo Consensus On Population And Development” that fully reaffirms and goes beyond guidelines established by the Cairo Program of Action in 1994.
Hundreds of civil society representatives representing around 50 regional networks of feminists and youth activists but also Afro-latino indigenous groupings as well as demographers gathered around the ALAP (Latin American Association on Population) have also participated and issued their own positions.
