In August 2022, the APEC Smart Families Initiative was launched with a focus on addressing the underlying drivers of demographic trends and their associated economic challenges while centering reproductive choice. Following its launch, the Initiative convened a cross-sectoral APEC Smart Families Expert Working Group, comprised of participants from government, international organizations, academia, private sector, and other interested members of civil society from APEC economies and around the world. The overarching goal of the APEC Smart Families Initiative is to address demographic trends through the development and deployment of comprehensive, holistic policy options inclusive of both family planning and fertility planning.
