This grant would support the Population Reference Bureau to translate population and development related research, policy briefs, and information about funding and presentation opportunities from English to French. Many vital publications and information can only be found in English, and therefore difficult to access for Francophone policy makers, scholars, and other stakeholders. These materials have the potential to increase local knowledge of and capacity to analyze population and reproductive health issues in Francophone West Africa, such as the causes and consequences of high fertility, as well as the latest evidence about effective ways to address these challenges.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support
The Population Reference Bureau (PRB) identifies, synthesizes, and disseminates rigorously vetted demographic, health, and environmental data and serves as a bridge between data producers and evidence users, including policy influencers, public- and private-sector decision makers, and advocacy organizations. PRB’s extensive expertise in demography, public policy, communications, and health affords the organization a unique role in the global development field, which it leverages through a wide range of strategic partnerships across multiple sectors..

for support of Counting Women’s Work
As a regionally led consortium, the Counting Women’s Work (CWW) project seeks to expand the analysis of unpaid care work and deepen local engagement to support the effective use of evidence in economic policy formulation and implementation in Africa. The consortium includes the Population Reference Bureau, the Consortium Régional pour la Recherche en Économie Générationnelle, and the University of California at Berkeley. In this third phase of the project, the CWW team will accelerate progress toward macro-level gender-responsive policy reforms in Benin, Mali, Niger, Senegal, and Togo, building on its successes and applying lessons learned.
