The Higher Population Council (HPC) is considered as the national reference for all population and development-related information; analysis and population driven policy directives. With a three-pronged theory of change focusing at the enabling environment level of legislative frameworks/policies; the institutional level; and the community/individual level, HPC facilitates the integration and mainstreaming of population profiles/dynamics and population issues/challenges and opportunities into socioeconomic and political planning frameworks at national and local levels; monitors and evaluates their implementation; advocates and raise awareness on these issues; and enhances national capabilities in coordination with partners to achieve sustainable development, justice and equal opportunities for all. Focusing on the thematic areas of a human-rights based approach to development; youth empowerment; gender equality; and refugees/migrants access to rights the HPC proposes population strategies/projections; carries out specialized population-issues relevant studies based on analysis of national statistical data to provide evidence-base policy making and enhances the cooperation and coordination with national, regional and international organizations concerned with population issues.
