Launch of CAPPD's 1st Newsletter
On December 2, CAPPD shared its first edition of the quarterly newsletter.

The newsletter features an interview with the Director of UNFPA's Technical Division, updates on the post-2015 development agenda, and much more!

In October, CAPPD partnered with Action Canada for Population & Development to launch UNFPA's 2013 State of World Population Report. The theme for this years' report was adolescent pregnancy.

Excerpt from report launch press release
"The report indicates that adolescent pregnancy occurs as a result of combined factors including poverty, lack of access to education and sexual and reproductive health services and information, early and forced marriage, sexual violence, among others. Responding to these, Ms. Rathika Sitsabaiesan, Member of Parliament and Chair of the Canadian Association of Parliamentarians on Population and Development, told reporters that one critical piece of the puzzle is ensuring “adolescents’ access to a comprehensive package of sexual and reproductive health services as a human right and a concrete strategy through which we can provide them with better opportunities for success.”"
