Who We Are
The National Council for Population and Development (NCPD) was established in 1982 as a department in the then office of the Vice President and Ministry of Home Affairs. Its role was mainly to advice on all matters pertaining to population. NCPD’s mandate was further enhanced under Sessional Paper No. 4 of 1984 on Population Policy Guidelines, and was later revised, to form the backbone of Sessional Paper No. 1 of 2000 on National Population Policy for Sustainable Development.
