ICPD Beyond 2014 Review Conference

Date of event: 12 August 2013 - 15 August 2013
Location: Montevideo, Uruguay

800 delegates representing government, civil society and youth organisations gathered to assess regional progress towards the goals of the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo. In 1994 the ICPD Programme of Action fundamentally changed the framework for discussion of population and development concerns by insisting that individual rights and choices were placed at the heart of policies on population and development. Principal among these rights was the right of individuals to freely and responsibly decide the timing and size of their family.
