World Population Day is an important global event aimed at raising awareness about population issues and their impact on sustainable development. It was established by the United Nations in 1989, in response to the world's growing population, and the challenges posed by limited resources, economic development, and environmental protection. The goal of this day is to promote population policies and programs that prioritize the well-being of people and the planet.
In Australia, World Population Day is celebrated with a range of activities and events organized by international organizations, government agencies, and NGOs. These events aim to draw public attention to population issues such as access to health care, family planning, education, and gender equality. They also highlight the importance of sustainable development, biodiversity conservation, and climate change adaptation.
The Australian government actively participates in World Population Day activities and initiatives, through its foreign aid programs, advocacy campaigns, and partnerships with international organizations. One of the key priorities of the government's population policy is to address the challenges of an ageing population and to support sustainable population growth through targeted migration policies. World Population Day is observed annually on July 11th.
