Focus on the people

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

DISCUSSIONS and proposed programs being formulated as a result of the Group of 77 countries meeting in Natadola must be people-centred.

This is the view of the executive director of the United Nations Population Fund, Dr Babatunde Osotimehin, during the first session of talks at the G77 High-Level Panel of Eminent Personalities of the South yesterday.

"We in this new development agenda must be people-centred," Dr Osotimehin said.

"Women and girls are the most important ones. They are half the world and they're responsible for the other half. We all know that when times get tough, it is women and girls who are the victims."
