Localizing ICPD Commitments: Youth and Community

Twenty-five years on, the reality of the ICPD Programme of Action is that its agenda has too often taken a global focus at the expense of local-level progress. The aim of this session is to bring together an inter-generational group of leaders and change-makers to exchange best practices, policy objectives and strategies that inspire change at the local level, and to apply these lessons to better implement the ICPD Programme of Action at the local level. This concurrent session will move ICPD25 from global to local by empowering young people to be the drivers of change in their own communities and have their sexual and reproductive health and rights fulfilled. This event will be convened by Rutgers, HIVOS, Choice of Youth and Sexuality and Dance4Life.

Summit Closing: A Global Call to Action

Over three days, the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 will cover over 85 events that chart the path forward for different thematic areas under the ICPD Programme of Action. Stakeholders will announce major commitments to turn novel ideas and agreed best practices into concrete plans for progress. But what will it take to keep the momentum of the Summit all the way through 2030 and beyond? The Summit Closing will be a celebratory and reflective event during which participants have the opportunity to ask themselves, their communities, their governments and their leaders: “What can we do today, tomorrow, and over the course of the next decade, to ensure rights and choices are a reality for all?”

Through poetry, skits, the spoken word and a panel discussion, the session will showcase the progress these girls have seen and made, the constraints they still face in their daily lives and the solutions they have identified for themselves and their communities.

Human Rights for All: The Politics of Inclusion

Whose rights and choices have been fulfilled, and which groups and individuals have been left behind? Twenty-five years after the landmark agreement in Cairo, equality is still a goal rather than a reality. This is especially true for girls and women and people of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities, who often face barriers to their sexual and reproductive health and rights and heightened vulnerability to gender-based violence. This conversation will highlight the experiences of human rights defenders and their insights on what it takes to ensure radical and transformative change in the lives of those facing discrimination and exclusion. Expect provocative questions and proposed solutions to finally and fully realizing an inclusive ICPD Programme of Action.
