HOW NGOS CAN PROMOTE COMMITMENT FOR POPULATION AND DEVELOPMENT
HANS FLEISCH AND ISALBE BLOME
At the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) held in 1994 in Cairo, 180 nations adopted a Program of Action to improve reproductive health world wide and to humanely slow down the rapid world population’s growth. The agreement focused on measures to be taken until 2015, aiming at achieving universal access to sexual education, to mother- and childcare and to a broad variety of family planning methods - as well as on financial commitments to realize these goals.
The European Union, as a major donor to finance the implementation of the Cairo Program of Action, has up to now by far not met the financial goals set out in Cairo. This development poses a challenge for private charitable organizations, so-called Non-Governmental Organizations, working in the field of population and development. They have developed different strategies in order to enhance the governmental commitment to the Cairo Program of Action.
