We know we need more action, more commitment, more investment in a far faster pace of change. But how? That’s what the Nairobi Summit to mark the 25th anniversary of the ICPD set out to answer. Under the banner of “Accelerating the Promise”, it took place in Nairobi, Kenya, from 12 to 14 November 2019, co-convened by the Governments of Denmark and Kenya, and UNFPA. The culmination of a year-long process to re-energize people everywhere, the Summit brought together 8,300 people from 172 countries and territories. They made over 1,250 commitments to action. And with many voices they spoke as one in standing against decades of pushback on sexual and reproductive health and rights, and the equality of women and girls.
