High-level Conference on ICPD25

The Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 aims to mobilize the political will and financial commitments to finally and fully implement the Programme of Action adopted by the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in 1994. 

The Summit will re-energize the global community, bringing an unusually broad coalition of people together to breathe new life into the ICPD agenda. It will be a springboard for governments, businesses, foundations and other organizations to announce voluntary commitments at the global, national and local levels to accelerate progress. 

This Summit is a unique opportunity to help lift up women and girls, their families and communities, and create a better world with rights and choices for all.
