The United Nation observes a day aimed at raising awareness about the urgency and importance of population issues. The U.N. established World Population Day in 1989.

This year’s observance will call for “global attention to the unfinished business of the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development,” U.N. officials said in a statement. “Twenty-five years have passed since that landmark conference, where 179 governments recognized that reproductive health and gender equality are essential for achieving sustainable development.”
