Her er en oversikt over Norges forpliktelser til 25-årsmarkeringen av handlingsprogrammet for konferansen om befolkning og utvikling (ICPD).
Norway is a staunch supporter of the ICPD Programme of Action, the outcome documents and reviews and of universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). Norway commits to protect and promote universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights for all – including girls, youth, and marginalised groups, both politically and financially.
Norway is committed to contribute to the full, effective and accelerated implementation of the ICPD Programme of Action.
Politically: Norway commits to strong and continued efforts to protect and promote universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights for all, both nationally and internationally. Norway will stand firm and defend established norms and universal rights. Norway commits to strengthen access to sexual and reproductive health services for the affected population in humanitarian response. Protection against SGBV is an important component of Norway’s humanitarian strategy. Norway will also commit itself to increasing the percentage of bilateral development assistance that has women’s rights and gender equality as a primary or significant goal from 33% to 50%.
Financially: Norway commits to invest approximately NOK 10,4 billion in sexual and reproductive health and rights for the period 2020-2025. This includes approximately 9,6 billion to SRHR for the period of 2020-2025, and NOK 760 million for the period 2020-2023 to eliminate harmful practices. In addition, Norway commits NOK 1 billion for the period 2019-2021 to protection against SGVB and provision of sexual and reproductive health services in humanitarian situations.
In addition to Norway’s substantial investments in girls’ education and global health, we pledged in 2017 to increase our investments in SRHR by NOK 700 million by 2020. This pledge has been reached in 2019, one year early. In 2018 alone, Norway’s total investments in SRHR amounted to close to NOK 1.6 billion
