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 support of Counting Women's Work
This grant will support the Counting Women’s Work project that seeks to estimate the age and gender dimensions of economic activity, including unpaid care work, and create indicators that are amenable to policy analyses. The Population Reference Bureau, partnering with the University of California at Berkeley, will provide technical assistance and grants to five African research teams to measure the production and consumption of women’s unpaid care work and its effect on economic growth. Teams will develop research-to-action plans that model potential post-COVID-19 policy solutions, engage in-country stakeholders, and include national statistics, economic planning, labor units, and advocates to promote evidence use.
