Paris, 4-5 October, hosted by Le Planning Familial
The 2016 EuroNGOs Conference "A Strong Start - Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in the 2030 Agenda" was hosted by our member Le Planning Familial and took place in Paris on 4-5 October, 2016.
In the past few years, the SRHR community has heavily engaged in the post-2015 process, which culminated in the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015, with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Therefore, the main aim of this year’s EuroNGOs conference was to ensure that the SRHR community is ready to effectively engage in the implementation, follow-up and review of the SDGs, and strategically use them to advance our advocacy on SRHR in a global perspective.
The conference gathered 165 participants from all over the world, among them EuroNGOs members and partners, policy makers, researchers, and experts, convening people within and outside the SRHR community.
