The Compendium of Recommendations on Population and Development: Regional Conferences on Population and Development Held in Preparation for the Review of the ICPD Programme of Action beyond 2014 (Volume II) provides recommendations emanating from recent outcome documents of five regional conferences on population and development convened by the Regional Commissions in preparation 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.
