The 10th Anniversary of the ICPD, in 2004, marked the mid-point of its 20-year Programme of Action. This offered an opportunity to reflect on progress to date and take stock of challenges ahead. Towards this end, UNFPA conducted an in-depth, country-by-country analysis of achievements, constraints, lessons learned and viable approaches towards full implementation of the ICPD PoA. The 10th Anniversary was also an opportunity to reflect on the diversity of the ICPD goals, and demonstrate how their achievement would forward progress toward the Millennium Development Goals. This page reflects some of the highlights of the ICPD at Ten Review.
At the mid-point in what was originally conceived of as a 20-year time-horizon, UNFPA issued three publications on implementation of the ICPD Programme of Action.
Several publications document the ICPD + 10 review:
