Although not initially meant for ICPD+5 activities, ECA also convened the First and Second Meetings of the Follow up Committee to assess the implementation of DND - see reports FC1.Report and FC2.Report, respectively, available for download at the bottom of this page.

 

The joint Secretariat of ECA/OAU/ADB is planning to convene the Third General Assembly of the African Population Commission in May 1999 in Abuja, Nigeria. The main findings from the assessment of the African experience on the implementation of the DND and ICPD.PA from the First Meeting of ECA Conference on Sustainable Development will be presented to the OAU Conference of Ministers/Summit of Head of States in June 1999 for endorsement as the African Statement which will in turn be presented to the Fifty-fourth Session of the General Assembly to be held in June-July 1999. Furthermore, ECA will produce in 1999 the first two issues of Africa's Population and Development Bulletin-Bulletin d'Afrique sur la Population et le Développement. The objective of the Bulletin is to encourage the exchange and sharing among African countries their experiences in the implementation of the DND and ICPD.PA For more information on ICPD+5 activities - see FC3.Events available for download at the bottom of this page.

 

In 1999, the FSSDD division of the ECA will launch the first two issues of Africa's Population and Development Bulletin - Bulletin d'Afrique sur la Population et le Développement. Its aim is to encourage the exchange and sharing among African countries their experiences in the implementation of the Dakar Ngor Declaration (DND) and the International Conference on Population and Development - Programme of Action (ICPD-PA).
