Abstract

"The thirteen Pacific Island Countries that responded to the Global Survey (Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu) were among the 179 States that participated in the International Conference on Population and Development held in September 1994 and that took part in the negotiations to finalise a Programme of Action (PoA) on population and development for the next 20 years. In preparation for the five-year review of the ICPD in the Hague, the Netherlands in February 1999, the same thirteen countries and Tokelau attended a Ministerial Meeting in November 1998 organised by UNFPA in collaboration with the Government of Fiji. The Meeting culminated with a Ministerial Statement and a Pacific Response to the Programme of Action of the ICPD, which formed the basis for a collective Pacific pledge to the objectives of the ICPD PoA."
