Parliamentarians

By enacting and improving relevant laws and policies, parliamentarians help to create an enabling environment for the achievement of the ICPD goals and the MDGs. They also play a critical role in mobilizing necessary resources.

Although much has been accomplished since the ICPD in 1994, much more has yet to be done. The achievement of the ICPD goals will depend on the political will to fill the gaps in laws, policies and funding. Only with the support of parliamentarians can we build this political will.
