FP2020 Reference Group Meeting: October 12-13, 2017, Abuja, Nigeria

Build upon the momentum from and assess the impact of the 2017 FP Summit. Determine approaches for imbedding Summit outcomes/global goods into FP2020 architecture to ensure family planning is an option for everyone who needs it, including adolescents, women and girls in humanitarian situations, the marginalized, and poorest populations. Begin to discuss the connection between accountability for fulfilling commitments and achieving FP2020 goals to a longer-term ambition for women and girls within the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) by 2030.

During this two-day meeting, the Reference Group will assess the latest data on FP2020 progress and consider high-impact, evidence-based solutions oriented toward addressing four global challenges. By the end of the meeting, the Reference Group will reach consensus on core issues and outline a course of action for itself, the Secretariat, and partners to enact immediate measures, resolve problems, and accelerate progress.
