State of World Population 2019

Reproductive rights and choices have become a reality for more women than ever, says UNFPA’s flagship report,?State of World Population 2019. Yet despite these gains, vast numbers of women around the world are not empowered to make fundamental decisions about their own bodies. UNFPA’s report publishes, for the first time, data on women’s ability to make decisions over three key areas: sexual intercourse with their partner, contraception use and health care.

Over the last decades, the country’s agricultural scientists have made use of nuclear and isotopic techniques in crop production. In cooperation with the IAEA and the FAO, they are now helping experts from Asia and beyond in the development of new crop varieties, using irradiation.
