Governments and other stakeholders are invited to join FP2030 by making a formal commitment. The FP2030 partnership is open to any country or organization that wishes to make a commitment to advancing rights-based family planning. This includes partners from outside the family planning sector, such as those in the broader global health, climate change, humanitarian, and private sectors.

For governments, a commitment to FP2030 is an opportunity to invest in transformational progress for their citizens, in alignment with national development goals and with the support of global partnerships and the world’s largest community of practice on family planning.

For other stakeholders — including civil society and youth organizations, international nongovernment organizations, multilateral agencies, academic institutions, donors, and private sector partners — a commitment to FP2030 represents an opportunity to promote cross-sectoral connections and partnerships, foster accountability and transparency, boost visibility, and connect with a global community of leaders, advocates, and implementers.


Accountability is an integral part of the FP2030 commitment process. The FP2030 Accountability Framework is designed to ensure that all commitments are developed and implemented in a culture of transparency, shared knowledge and evidence, and collective responsibility. The framework comprises four parallel processes to track progress:

Government commitment tracking: Government accountability centers on each government’s responsibility to its own citizens. Governments are encouraged to collaborate with civil society organizations (CSOs) to track and validate progress on their commitments; their annual reports are shared with FP2030.

Nongovernment commitment tracking: For nongovernment FP2030 partners, the accountability cycle revolves around an annual, streamlined self-reporting process. Each commitment-maker is responsible for recording its own metrics and milestones against its FP2030 commitment and preparing an annual self-report.

Donor contribution tracking: International donor funding for family planning is tracked by a number of organizations, including the Kaiser Family Foundation and Countdown 2030 Europe. FP2030 collaborates with these partners and others to produce an annual report on resource mobilization.

Country data tracking: This annual country-led process of compiling data and preparing estimates for the country indicators is undertaken in collaboration with Track20. Indicator estimates for all low-income and lower-middle-income countries are published in the FP2030 Annual Progress Report and on the FP2030 and Track20 websites.


The emphasis on high-quality data for family planning was a hallmark of the FP2020 initiative and will continue to play a central role in FP2030.

FP2020’s measurement framework was designed to transform the monitoring and evaluation of family planning, producing high-quality annual data with core indicators that are comparable across countries. The annual process of countries working with Track20 to analyze, review, and report their family planning data led to an increased capacity for data analysis, more regular conversations on progress, greater transparency on family planning measures, and more opportunities for the use of data for decision-making across sectors.

The FP2030 Measurement Framework is designed to maintain and build on this work. Updated country indicators provide continuity with the FP2020 measurement framework, while reflecting the evolution of learning in the field of family planning measurement. Countries can use these indicators to monitor aspects of the enabling environment for family planning, the process of delivering services, the output of those services, expected outcomes, and the impact of contraceptive use. Regional and global actors can use the FP2030 progress data to compare trends across countries and regions over time and support efforts to increase the integration of family planning within global health and development agendas.


Evidence-based advocacy for family planning is a core function of the FP2030 partnership. To create the enabling environment necessary to achieve the partnership’s aims, it is essential that the case for family planning be made — compellingly and consistently — at the country, regional, and global levels. Civil society engagement and advocacy are critical for achieving commitments, implementing accountability, removing policy barriers that impede access to family planning, and overcoming opposition.

The FP2030 partnership is committed to strengthening the advocacy ecosystem in each country by shifting power and ownership to governments, local civil society organizations, and other key stakeholders. At the country level, the partnership works to cultivate strong civil society coalitions, build human capacity, foster the use of data and evidence for advocacy, and facilitate the flow of information between policymakers and civil society organizations. At the regional and global level, FP2030 works to coordinate efforts, align strategies, facilitate learning exchanges, and amplify messages.

FP2030’s advocacy strategy for the next three years is in development with partners and will be launched in 2022.

Collaborative partnerships

Unlocking the full power of partnership is key to growing and sustaining the family planning movement. FP2030 is designed to serve as a platform for coalition building and cross-sectoral partnership, deepening family planning’s engagement with other sectors and making the case for family planning as central to the Sustainable Development Goals. FP2030’s partnership model also calls for fostering inclusiveness, integration, and intersectionality, ensuring that all people are represented and that progress benefits everyone.

FP2030 will continue FP2020’s collaborative work on rights-based family planning, high impact practices, and emergency preparedness and response. FP2030 will deepen FP2020’s engagement with young people and continue building relationships with other underserved groups, such as people with disabilities and members of the LGBTQIA+ community. In support of the universal health care and primary health care agendas, FP2030 will continue the drive toward integrating family planning with maternal, newborn, and child health; HIV; nutrition; and noncommunicable diseases.

FP2030 will also cultivate partnerships with other sectors and communities, including faith, climate change, gender equality, and population-health-environment.

FP2030 Support Network

The architecture of the FP2030 partnership is designed to promote country leadership and meaningful engagement with civil society within a transparent governance structure.

Five regional hubs (to be established in 2022) will coordinate and support country-specific activities, while remaining connected to the global family planning community. Four of the hubs will support commitment-makers in specific geographies: North, West, and Central Africa; East and Southern Africa; Asia and the Pacific; and Latin America and the Caribbean. The fifth hub will support the entire network with communications, data, and advocacy, while also supporting commitment-makers in North America and Europe.

The Support Network is led by the Executive Director, who is responsible for governance, funding, and overall direction.

The Governing Board drives strategy, resource mobilization, and the long-term development of the FP2030 partnership. It includes representatives from country governments, civil society and youth organizations, multilaterals, and donors, thus ensuring that a diverse group of leaders is setting the direction of the partnership.

Our history

In July 2012, leaders from around the world gathered for the London Summit on Family Planning. Organized by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the UK Department for International Development (now the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, or FCDO) in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the London Summit aimed to reignite the global commitment to meeting women’s unmet need for contraception. An ambitious goal was set — to empower the voluntary use of modern contraception by 120 million additional women and girls in the world’s lowest-income countries by 2020 — and a new partnership and platform was launched: Family Planning 2020 (FP2020).

Between 2012 and 2020, more than 130 governments, foundations, multilateral agencies, civil society organizations, youth-led organizations, and private sector entities joined the FP2020 partnership. Dozens of countries succeeded in strengthening and expanding their family planning programs, and millions of women and girls gained access to modern contraception. The FP2020 initiative became a movement, with a global community of practice grounded in data and evidence and guided by the principles of human rights.

As 2020 approached, the global family planning community agreed that this pivotal partnership should be extended. Together, building on the progress made to date, the community created a shared vision for the next decade of partnership: Family Planning 2030 (FP2030).
