Report on ICPD Programme of Action Implementation in the UNECE Region

Monitoring Framework

    

Ahead of the 25th anniversary of the ground-breaking International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and its Programme of Action in 2019, the Regional Conference assessed progress and identify gaps in the implementation of the ICPD Programme of Action in the UNECE region.

It focused on key actions for implementation and addressed the wider policy concerns related to:

  • Population dynamics and sustainable development;
  • Families, sexual and reproductive health over the life course; and
  • Inequalities, social inclusion and rights

Organized jointly by UNECE and UNFPA, the Conference further aimed to strengthen the linkages between ICPD and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and reaffirmed commitment to implementing the ICPD Programme of Action in the region.

A report covering trends and developments since the last review in 2014 informed discussions at the Conference. The report and the Conference outcome, in form of a Rapporteurs’ summary, fed into the global review to take place at the 52nd  Session of the Commission on Population and Development (CPD) in 2019.
