The Higher Population Council (HPC), represented by its Secretary-General, Dr. Abla Amawi, has recently participated in the coordination meetings currently held in Khartoum, which aim at institutional evaluation, strengthening the capabilities of Sudan's National Population Council (NPC), and developing a policy for institutional change.
In a statement issued by the HPC on Wednesday, Amawi said her participation in the coordination meetings comes in her capacity as a president of the Arab Council for Population and Development (ACPD) under the umbrella of the Arab League.
The ACPD, an Arab League body, aims to enhance exchange pan-Arab expertise and coordinate to prepare a future Arab population strategy.
Amawi said: "The HPC is seen as one of the best councils in the Arab region, and is considered an effective model for population councils, and was chosen to represent the Arab region with the population meetings of its 52nd session at the United Nations."
The importance of developing the NPC stems from the political change that took place in Sudan, which resulted in an interim government that seeks freedom, peace and justice, according to the statement.
