In 2012, leaders from around the world gathered at the London Summit on Family Planning to generate global commitments aimed at enabling 120 million more women and girls to use contraceptives by 2020 and establish a partnership, Family Planning (FP2020), to help achieve them. However, FP2020 commitments can only be achieved with coordinated action at the local level, across multiple sectors and partners. Local stakeholders, including civil society, must be able to monitor progress towards achieving FP2020 goals to ensure government accountability.
