Nairobi Summit Anniversary: The commitments

In November 2019, the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 was held to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in 1994. The objective of the Summit was to galvanize political and financial momentum, as well as to build and strengthen partnerships to complete the unfinished businesses of the ICPD Programme of Action, including as an integral part of the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

The Summit resulted in the “Nairobi Statement on ICPD25 - Accelerating the Promise’, which contains 12 global commitments that are centered around the three zeros towards which UNFPA is working: Zero preventable maternal deaths, zero unmet need for family planning, and zero gender-based violence and harmful practices, including child marriage and female genital mutilation. This documentary looks into the commitments made by the countries in the Arab states region.
