ICPD Review International Conference on Human Rights

worldwide

End Date: 10 July 2013

7-10th July, The Hague

Co-hosted by the Government of the Netherlands, UNFPA and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights will provide an opportunity to assess the implementation of the ICPD Program of Action through an examination of the nexus between human rights, equality, equity and population and development, including in the key areas of gender, empowerment, and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Using a multi-stakeholder approach, governments, civil society organizations, human rights defenders, human rights experts and UN agencies will discuss human rights developments in the context of the ICPD PoA implementation over the past two decades.

The conference will identify successful stories and lessons learned as well as identifying remaining gaps, challenges, emerging issues and priorities for the future to ensure that the ICPD beyond 2014 agenda, as well as the broader development agenda beyond 2015, advance the realization of human rights without discrimination.
