Asia is home to approximately 60% of the world’s population. With the conviction that “a bright future for humankind cannot be attained without achieving population stabilisation in this region”, the Asian Population and Development Association (APDA) was established on February 1, 1982 and has since been engaged in activities working towards social development, economic progress, and the enhancement of welfare and peace in the world through studying and researching population and development issues in Asia and elsewhere.
