Editor's Massege

Demographic Change particularly shifting Age Structures is pivotal for understanding socio-political aspects influencing growth and development. With 69% of its population under the age of 29 years, Pakistan has a tremendous opportunity only if major investments are made in our youth and citizens, otherwise the same youth could be the most serious threat to itself, society and the state. This demographic trend demands that population be recognized as a core national issue and budgetary priorities reoriented from defense & security to population welfare & investment in our youth for securing Pakistan’s future.
