Annual Ministerial Review

The purpose of the Annual Ministerial Review (AMR), which first met in 2007, is to assess the progress made towards attaining the MDGs and the implementation of the other development goals and targets agreed at major UN conferences and summits over the past 15 years. It also works to scale-up and accelerate action to fulfill the development goals by serving as global high-level forum where views are exchanged and successful approaches to development are analyzed and identified for scaling-up.

The Review consists of a general debate and roundtable discussions with Ministers and leading experts on the AMR theme. In addition countries have the opportunity to make national voluntary presentations (NVPs).

IPPF submits a written statement at each of the AMRs, and if present, gives an oral statement. We also work to influence the language in the Ministerial Declaration which is adopted at the end of each session.
