Residents Encouraged to Join UNFPA Population & Policy Online Training

Residents of Montserrat have been offered an opportunity to participate and benefit from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) e-learning course on population dynamics and policy, beginning May 1, 2024.

The Ministry of Finance and Economic Management (MoFEM) explained that this opportunity is made available through one of the deliverables of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Joint Fund Programme for Barbados and Montserrat.
