Grants to this Grantee
for support of PopPov travel grants  
With this grant, the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population will work in collaboration with members of the PopPov Research Network to organize and host two conferences on the links among population dynamics, sexual and reproductive health, family planning, and economic development. The goal of these conferences is to advance knowledge on how population policies can be used for poverty reduction at the household level and economic growth at the national and subnational levels.
for support of the demography field's participation in the Data Revolution  
International Union for the Scientific Study of Population convenes experts on issues of scientific and policy relevance and informs policymakers of the implications of population dynamics for human welfare. This grant will support the union to foster methodological advances to measure population in a more disaggregated, geographically precise way. It will ensure the involvement of top demographers at international forums related to the data revolution and create collaborations among demographers, data scientists, government officials, and others. The ultimate aim is to enable decision makers, researchers, and civil society to make better use of population data in informing development priorities and interventions.
