APDA/AFPPD Hybrid Meeting on Nairobi Commitments Follow-up under COVID-19

25-26 November, 2021, Tokyo, Japan

Over two days on 25 and 26 November, the Asian Forum of Parliamentarians on Population and Development (AFPPD) and the Asian Population and Development Association (APDA; the secretariat for JPFP) organized the Hybrid Meeting on Nairobi Commitments 1Follow-up under COVID-19. The meeting was supported by the Asia and the Pacific Regional Office of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA APRO) and the Japan Trust Fund (JTF).

Women, ethnic minorities, and children are the most vulnerable members of society at times of emergencies. These groups also overlap as a focus of population programmes. The meeting was organized from the perspective that establishing support mechanisms and international cooperation is essential to reducing the impact on vulnerable members of society. Such mechanisms and cooperation is also essential for preventing unwanted pregnancies, which are at the root of population issues.

1 Commitments adopted at the Nairobi Summit that was held in Kenya in 2019 in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) held in Cairo in 1994.
