With this grant, the Population Reference Bureau (PRB) will continue to provide timely and objective information and policy analysis on population, health, and environmental trends to policymakers, educators, the media, and the general public. PRB plans to expand and improve upon its digital dissemination capabilities, including the development of more animated and interactive data visualization features to enhance the appeal and understanding of technical information. A redesign of PRB’s website and development of applications for smart phones and tablets will help meet user expectations about speed of access to information and increasing sophistication of the search function. PRB will target large web portals, wire services, and media outlets to disseminate content and interactive graphics, and form stronger partnerships with think tanks, universities, NGOs, and development communities in developing countries to distribute research findings and publications in a variety of formats. Over the grant period, PRB also proposes to develop new initiatives that help link population to broader development issues such as agriculture, climate change, and governance.

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.
