In 2010, the General Assembly (GA) of the United Nations reaffirmed the goals of the Programme of Action (PoA) of the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and initiated a thorough review of the implementation of the PoA 20 years after its adoption. GA resolution 65/234 established a roadmap for achieving the vision of the ICPD PoA beyond 2014 (ICPD Beyond 2014) and requested the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), in cooperation with the regional commissions and other agencies, to lead the review process. The ICPD Beyond 2014 review in the UNECE region was coordinated by UNECE Population Unit and UNFPA Eastern Europe and Central Asia Regional Office (EECARO).

The review of the implementation of ICPD PoA in the UNECE region concluded with the UNECE Regional Conference on ICPD beyond 2014, entitled “Enabling Choices: Population Priorities for the 21st Century”. The Conference took place at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland from 1 to 2 July 2013. The conference was organized jointly by UNECE and UNFPA and hosted by the Government of Switzerland.
