Launch of SWOP 2016 in the Netherlands
What does the world look like in 15 years time? That depends on the opportunities we offer 10-year-old girls, today. This is the theme of The State of the World Population 2016 (SWOP) by UNFPA, that was launched worldwide on the 20th of October 2016. If we invest in the future of 10-year-old girls nów, this generation will be able to develop themselves into independent, capable, confident and well-educated young women. They can make a difference in 2030. In The Netherlands Rutgers together with UNFPA handed over the State of the World Population to 10 capable Dutch 10-year-old girls.
