UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Natalia Kanem was joined by strategic partners representing the private sector, civil society, international institutions, fashion, sport and government to discuss the soft power that partnerships
for women’s rights can bring to rebuild a new model for multilateralism.
During the Nairobi Summit that celebrated the 25 th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, this broad spectrum of public and private partners galvanized political and financial momentum to complete the unfinished business of the ICPD Programme of Action. Private sector organizations announced during the event that they would mobilize some $8 billion in combined new pledges to achieve the three transformative results by 2030.
This dialogue took place the day before the launch of the High-Level Commission on the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 Follow-up. In this discussion, experts, activists, artists and public officials will offer insights on innovative ways to improve women’s leadership and participation in all spheres of society. They will showcase the power of partnerships to bring to scale change for women and girls, and build more equal and inclusive societies.
