Population Age Structure Changes in Sub-Saharan Africa

Demographic Dividend Luminaries Series

The William H. Gates Sr. Institute for Population and Reproductive Health, the Demographic Dividend (DD) Initiative, and the International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) invite you to the following webinar:

🗓️  Thursday, 18 January 2024
🕑 9-10 AM EST | 2-3 PM GMT
💬 English | français
📍 via Zoom

 

You are invited to join the family planning community on Thursday, 18 January from 9-10 AM EST for this Demographic Dividend Luminaries Series webinar about the ongoing population age structure changes taking place in Sub-Saharan Africa.

This session will focus on the possibility of “the youth bulge” (a relatively large increase in the proportion of young people within a population), which can play a significant role in a country’s ability to harness the benefits of a “demographic dividend” (the boost in economic growth that can result from changes in a country’s population age structure).

Speakers will discuss data innovations that the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is leading to support the African region in attaining a demographic dividend. Additionally, participants will examine major concerns related to climate change and population in these contexts.

This event will include an interactive question and answer session, and will be hosted in English with live French interpretation.
