This grant would enable the Population Reference Bureau to continue to inform people around the world about population, health, and the environment, and empower them to use information to advance the well-being of current and future generations. The Bureau plans to advance four key intermediate outcomes in the near term: on the programmatic side, the organization would develop a pipeline of projects on priority emerging issues such as data needs in the new Sustainable Development Goals, and increase its visibility and leadership in the population and development field; on the organizational side, it would develop a comprehensive monitoring, learning, and evaluation framework, and improve its human resources management system.

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.
