2.6 Challenges and Opportunities


This is a final section that should fulfill a threefold function: a) to serve as a summary and conclusions, with an emphasis on the relevance of the findings (conceptual and empirical evidence) and the identification of the main challenges and priorities that confront the country, as well as the contribution that can be made from the viewpoint of population analysis. That means putting the main messages of the analysis into place and relating them creatively to the political and institutional context existing and with the way the United Nations works in the country; b) based on the former analysis, to highlight the opportunities and the need for investing in rights-based public policies for reducing inequalities; and c) to define in this context what the strategic interventions are that UNFPA can undertake as part of a joint effort of the United Nations System to support the development of the country.
