UNECE Conference on ICPD+25: Registration extended

In 2019, we will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) which was held in Cairo in 1994, and its Programme of Action. Ahead of this important moment, the Regional Conference on Enabling Choices: Population Dynamics and Sustainable Development will be organised by UNECE and UNFPA on 1-2 October in Geneva.

The event will focus on key actions for implementation and address the wider policy concerns related to:

  • Population dynamics and sustainable development
  • Families, sexual and reproductive health over the life course; and
  • Inequalities, social inclusion and rights

 Furthermore, the conference is aimed at fostering the linkages between ICPD and the 2030 Agenda as well as reaffirming the regional commitments related to implementation of the ICPD Programme Action. The meeting outcomes will feed into the global review which will take place at the 52nd Session of the Commission on Population and Development (CPD) in 2019.


Registration is only open to UNECE Member States official delegations, representatives of international organizations, NGOs under active consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and invited experts.

Follow this link to register before September 17. Here you can find the practical information.
