In compliance with this mandate, ECLAC's Latin American & Caribbean Demographic Centre CELADE-Population Division and UNFPA will develop a wide range of activities in the region, within the framework of the celebrations of the 25th anniversary of the ICPD to be held during this year in different parts of the world.
