(FR) I spoke today in plenary on the European Union's commitments at the Nairobi Summit.

From 12 to 14 November 2019, a delegation from the Commission on Women's Rights and Gender Equality and the Commission on European Parliament Development took part in the Nairobi Summit, which marked the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (CIPD) in Cairo in 1994.

Although a lot of progress has been made since then, there is still a lot to be done to ensure respect for women's fundamental rights, including the right to physical autonomy, health and sexual rights, to eliminate sexual and sexual violence and to achieve the goals of sustainable development (SDD) by 2030.
