Participation in ICPD/ADDPD Review Training Workshop Held on February 20th -22nd 2018- United Nations Economic Commission for Africa Conference Center, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa brought together population experts from different African countries Ghana, Mali, Malawi, Kenya, Zambia, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Cote d’Ivoire, Senegal, Djibouti, Namibia, Liberia among others for a training on the review of the Addis Ababa Declaration on Population and Development (ADDPD+5). The review will evaluate the progress in the implementation of the ADDPD at the member states’ levels and Africa as a region since its adoption by AU Ministers in 2013. The review will gather information on the implementation of the 88 resolutions under seven pillars (Dignity and Equity; Health; Place and mobility; Governance; Data and Statistics; International cooperation and partnership and Implementation). During this training, participants had the opportunity to share country experiences in the ADDPD implementation, review the draft country questionnaire and agree on timelines for the process. The expected outcome of the review will be a country report and a regional review report for Africa.
