Recent research has shown that meeting the unmet need for family planning is not only a powerful way to improve women’s health but also is a cost-effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The recommended funds would enable the Population Reference Bureau and its partner, the Worldwatch Institute, to assemble an expert working group on population and climate change. The group will prepare a detailed policy proposal outlining various policy options and steps needed to implement those options. The Bureau will also develop a dissemination plan for the report, including dissemination at key international conferences and other forums to reach decision makers at global, national, regional, and local levels.

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.
