a PSC In The News reference, 2013

"Gaps, challenges and emerging issues" - ICPD web site. 06/28/2013.

Rachel Snow and colleagues made a presentation to the United Nations member states on initial findings from a survey of progress towards the goals of the ICPD Programme of Action. The survey, which was completed by 176 governments, is part of the mandated review of a landmark international document that placed human rights, in particular the rights of women and girls at the heart of the global development agenda. The survey set out to capture what had been achieved since 1994 as well as gaps, challenges, emerging issues and future priorities of governments in relation to the ICPD agenda. (See the report on preliminary findings.)
