This meeting report is based on a Fund-wide consultation to review UNFPA's three-decade long experience in population education (PopEd). The report highlights issues and recommendations for addressing and strengthening education interventions within the context of programme and funding priorities, and offers an opportunity to review lessons of the past and chart some of the ways forward.

Included in the report are case studies of efforts in India, Mongolia, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Peru, Yemen, and selected countries in the Latin America and Caribbean region on how to institutionalize PopEd, how to introduce sexuality education, and similar experiences in family life and peer education.
