International Conferences for Parliamentarians
Since its establishment, APDA has been holding the annual Asian Parliamentarians’ Meeting on Population and Development (APDA Meeting) to promote understanding and increase awareness of population and development issues among Japanese, Asian, and Pacific parliamentarians. Additionally, in synergy with AFPPD, APDA is engaged in other various activities.

Parliamentary Study Visits
APDA sends Japanese and Asian parliamentarians overseas to observe projects conducted by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Japanese Government. Similarly, parliamentarians from selected countries are invited to Japan to visit facilities in areas such as population and development, health and medical care. Through exchange between parliamentarians from Japan and other countries, the programme aims to strengthen cooperation and promote parliamentarians’ engagement in the field of population and development.
