UNFPA Regional Office established the International Advisory Panel on Population and Development for Eastern Europe and Central Asia (IAPPD-EECA). The purpose of the panel is to further support countries and to foster continued cooperation between institutions in the region. Given its strong interest and practice in population and development (including the existence of the National Commission on Population and Development), and the important national processes that will take place during 2016, Republic of Moldova is considered as the first country to benefit from this expertise.
The second meeting of the International Advisory Panel on Population and Development - Moldova will take place on October 17-18, 2016, in Chisinau.
The IAPPD-Moldova assists Government and the National Commission on Population and Development with advice on prioritizing investments needed to develop Moldova’s human capital given scarce resources and economic realities in Moldova. As a high-level national decision-making body, the National Commission on Population and Development benefits from high-quality technical opinions, international expertise and examples of good practices in the field of population and development. Engagement of the Panel with Moldova would also enable Moldova to enhance its visibility within the region and showcase its good practices.
