The 2005 World Summit

14 Septiembre 2005 - 16 Septiembre 2005

New York, United States

Five years after the landmark Millennium Development Summit, which resulted in the Millennium Development Goals, the United Nations convened a followup  meeting,It was a once-in-a-generation opportunity to take bold decisions in the areas of development, security, human rights and reform of the United Nations.

The agenda was based on an achievable set of proposals outlined in March 2005 by Secretary-General Kofi Annan in his report “In Larger Freedom”. At the summit, the largest-ever gathering of world leaders, the importance of achieving the MDGs was reaffirmed at the highest international level.

As a result of the Summit, a number of Millennium Development Goals target and indicators were expanded. Critical for UNFPA was the addition of MDG 5b – Achieving by 2015 universal access to reproductive health, as envisioned by the International Conference on Population and Development. This was accompanied by new indicators on contraceptive prevalence rate, adolescent birth rate, antenatal care coverage, and unmet need for family planning. World leaders also agreed to promote the rights of women more broadly.
