Population Matters is a membership organization that has been in existence for more than 20 years.
Our vision is of a global population size enabling decent living standards for all and environmental sustainability. Among our goals are universal access to family planning services, an end to discrimination against women throughout the world and a global convergence in living standards.Our activities comprise education, research, lobbying and campaigning. All of our activities are guided by our values.
We work with other organizations that are addressing population and sustainability issues.
Detailed information about our activities and finances can be found in our annual reports.
Until 2011, Population Matters was known as the Optimum Population Trust, which remains our registered name.
We are unconnected with but entirely endorse the US-based blog Population Matters.
