The 28th meeting of the UN Population Commission is scheduled for 21 February - 2 March 1995 in New York. The Commission was renamed the "UN Commission on Population and Development" by the 49th session of the General Assembly to emphasize the new and comprehensive approach to population and development embodied in the Cairo Programme of Action. The General Assembly has requested the Commission to review, within its area of competence, the Programme of Action and its implications and to transmit its views to the Economic and Social Council at its substantive session in 1995.
