The Nairobi Summit on ICPD+25 – Accelerating the Promise; marked the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) held in Cairo in 1994 that recognized sexual and reproductive rights as human rights for the first time. The Summit brought together governments, civil society, academia, the private sector, faith-based organizations, international financial institutions, grassroots organizations and other partners interested in the pursuit of sexual and reproductive health and rights. Participants made commitments as part of an international effort to ensure that the promise of the ICPD Programme of Action (PoA) and the 2030 Agenda are achieved, and women and girls have autonomy over their bodies and their lives.

The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) analysed the commitments made by governments of 137 countries who participated at the Summit to contribute to accountability action at the national level to ensure that those commitments are fulfilled.

The report ICPD+25 Nairobi Summit – A roadmap for fulfilling the promise identified thematic patterns, gaps, regional and global trends. The commitments were also analysed against SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound) criteria.

This report is dedicated to all advocates around the world.

The report includes a Government commitments database as well as briefings and regional versions translated into French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic and Portuguese. It identifies many opportunities for civil society and governments to galvanize the political energy of the Nairobi Summit.

Now is the time to increase efforts, to hold governments to account and work in partnership to ensure that these political commitments are turned into real national action to improve the lives of women and girls.
