Commission on Population and Development, 52nd session

1 Abril 2019 - 5 Abril 2019

United Nations Headquarters, New York

On 1 April, the 52nd session of the Commission on Population and Development will begin at United Nations Headquarters in New York. 

The Commission is tasked reviewing progress made since the 1994 adoption of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, which established the importance of sexual and reproductive health and rights to the well-being of people, communities and nations. 

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the ICPD Programme of Action. The Commission will examine the gains that have been made in implementing the Programme of Action, as well as the gaps and shortfalls in achieving its goals and objectives. The full implementation of the Programme of Action is critical for achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

All plenary meetings can be streamed live on UN WebTV:
