This paper was prepared as part of the Asian and Arab Parliamentarians’ Project on Population and Development, - an ongoing cooperation project between the UNFPA Arab States Regional Office (ASRO), the Asian Population and Development Association (APDA) and the Forum for Arab Parliamentarians for Population and Development (FAPPD) - which is funded by the Government of Japan.

This research paper examines the concept of how people-centered and life cycle approaches might help move forward the implementation of the Cairo declaration 1994 and the Plan of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD PoA 1994) and its subsequent reviews. It shed light on the achievements, gaps, challenges, and emerging issues related to the implementation of the ICPD through regional and global reviews with a focus on sexual and reproductive health.
