"The tradition of World Population Conferences...has witnessed an expanding treatment of population and development interrelations.... The twenty years (1974-1994) during which African countries participated at three conferences along [with] other world nations have witnessed their crystallisation of and marked commitment to population and development issues at regional, national and sub-national levels. It is expected that these countries are well poised for embracing the UNFPA's three thematic areas to be applied through technical support tools as well as operational tools in the agency's African strategy for the rest of this century and beyond."
