In November 2019, the governments of Kenya and Denmark and UNFPA co-convened the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25, a high-level conference to mobilize the political will and financial commitments we urgently need to finally and fully implement the ICPD Programme of Action. These commitments were centered around achieving zero unmet need for family planning information and services, zero preventable maternal deaths, and zero sexual and gender-based violence and harmful practices against women and girls. The summit resulted in over 1250+ Commitments made by multiple stakeholders at the country, regional and global levels. In order to enable coherent analysis, and follow-up of the Commitments at a corporate, global level, it is critical that there is a quality assured, central database of all the Nairobi Commitments, tagged consistently, that can be drawn from for internal and external audiences, as per the need. The OV will contribute to the data coding and quality assurance exercise of the full body of 1250+ Nairobi Commitments.
