This chapter presents recommendations emerging from previous chaptersin four specific areas: sexual and reproductive health, young people’s health and development, women’s empowerment and gender equity, and emerging issues in population and sexual and reproductive health arenas ranging from meeting the needs of the urban poor to putting programmes in place to meet the needs of an ageing population. Cross-cutting across these four areas are the need for greater commitment to enforcing laws, meeting goals and targets set in policies and programmes and strengthening inter-sectoral linkages and public-private partnerships. Efforts to better understand the implementation challenges faced by each programme, to build accountability among programme implementers, and strengthen advocacy measures to engage the political leadership are essential in order that promises made can be realized.
