ICPD@20 Global Report Released

The ICPD Beyond 2014 Global Report is the culmination of a landmark UN review of progress, gaps, challenges and emerging issues in relation to the ICPD Programme of Action. It gathers data from 176 member states, alongside inputs from civil society and comprehensive academic research. Asserting the PoA’s relevance to the Post2015 development agenda, the report stresses inequalities – the cost of inequality for dignity and for sustainable development – and how investments in gender equality and rights, in youth, health and education and securing the human rights of all are essential to deliver sustainable global development goals.
