The Compendium of Recommendations on Population and Development: Commission on Population and Development (Vol. I) compares recommendations emanating from the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development with resolutions from the Commission on Population and Development. In addition, General Assembly resolutions on population and development since 1994 will be included in the Compendium as well. This Compendium will be prepared in time for the special session of the General Assembly on 22 September 2014 on the follow-up to the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development beyond 2014. The special session will mark the 20-year anniversary of the Programme of Action, and the Compendium will be an important and highly visible contribution to the event, informing Member States and the global public now and in the future.

Follow-up to the conference

The Programme of Action, adopted by consensus by 179 Governments in September 1994, urged countries to fully and effectively implement the Programme of Action through appropriate and relevant policies and programmes at the national level. Furthermore, implementation should be promoted at the subregional and regional levels, with attention to specific subregional and regional strategies and needs. The Programme of Action asked for full and consistent support, including financial and technical assistance, from the international community, including the United Nations system, for all efforts directed towards the implementation of the Programme of Action.
