Description and results


Canada is hosting the International Parliamentarians’ Conference on 22-23 October 2018 in Ottawa. Approximately 500 participants are invited to attend, including over 300 parliamentarians from all regions of the world, representatives from the national, regional and global parliamentary groups and non-governmental organizations. The event focuses on parliamentarian action and civil society collaboration toward universal sexual and reproductive health and rights, in contribution to the implementation of the International Conference on Population and Development’s Programme of Action. It is co-organized by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) with the European Parliamentary Forum and Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights, in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Parliamentarians on Population and Development.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced collaboration between parliamentarians and civil society actors toward universal SRHR; (2) enhanced support for progressive SRHR and gender equality policies within national parliamentary contexts, in over 100 countries; and (3) increased support for SRHR and gender equality in international assistance initiatives among the top 20 UNFPA donor countries through parliamentarian advocacy.
