Addressing a press conference final week, Toson mentioned that a delegation from all Arab nations such as Oman will attend this meeting and present the achievements and challenges of nations and the challenges in relation to population and improvement concerns. “It is also important to highlight the efforts of UNFPA GCC being a sub-regional office to reach out to the government and national stakeholders ahead of the high-level ministerial meeting, through consultation meetings to provide the needed technical assistance required by the governments to prepare their own national presentations and interventions.”

The 3-day conference will take location at ESCWA-UN House, Beirut, Lebanon.

Natalia Kanem, UNFPA executive director, as nicely as Mohamed Ali Alhakim, the executive secretary of ESCWA are scheduled to attend the conference. It is anticipated that the secretary common of the League of Arab States (LAS), Ahmed Aboul Gheit, will be attending as nicely.

The conference will serve to assess the progress and recognize the gaps in the implementation of the 2013 Cairo Declaration across the Arab area, with a concentrate on the commitments created and the policies and programmes implemented in different population improvement locations. “It will provide a peer learning platform for states to present their success stories and share their respective challenges. The discussion will be informed by a regional report synthesising inputs from Arab countries and highlighting major trends and development witnessed in the region since the last review in 2013,” Toson added.
