This is a report on a conference on population issues held in Quito, Ecuador, in March 1990. "Some 106 parliamentarians from 30 [Latin American and Caribbean] countries [and Canada] examined the following topics: population and the health of the family; population and the environment; population and social progress; [and] population policies: formulation and implementation. Several case studies were presented on each of the above topics. In these, the elected leaders examined a specific legislative or program initiative advanced in their countries; the object was to delineate the motivations for the initiative, the obstacles which were encountered, and the final results. The working groups, in turn, allowed for debate on these initiatives and on others related to the different conference topics."
