The 6th International Parliamentarians’ Conference on the Implementation of the ICPD Programme of Action (IPCI) aims to promote dialogue among parliamentarians from all regions of the world on the implementation of the 1994 ICPD Programme of Action, with a view to achieving further commitment to collective action in the areas of resource mobilization and the creation of an enabling policy environment for population and development.
The 6th IPCI/ICPD conference marks the 20th anniversary of the ICPD and the end of the original Cairo mandate. Despite the passage of time, the Cairo Programme of Action has proved to remain relevant and still resonates today as it did in 1994. Therefore, we should redouble our efforts to promote its visionary recommendations in any future development framework, as has already been done with the Millennium Development Goals.
The conference is expected to produce a forward-looking and action-oriented declaration and action plan that will build upon previous IPCI Commitments. It will also serve as a launching pad for the second phase of the visionary Cairo Programme and provide parliamentarians with a chance to consider strategic actions needed to significantly boost the implementation of the ICPD mandate.
