With this grant, the Population Reference Bureau would work to increase the salience and impact of research funded under the Population and Poverty Research Initiative (PopPov) among policy audiences, including policymakers from developing countries, the media, and advocacy organizations. Since 2005, the Foundation and other funders have supported more than 100 research projects on the links between reproductive health, population dynamics, and economic development. The Bureau intends to enhance the researchers’ capacity to develop and communicate policy messages, create and disseminate research syntheses, and organize consultations at key venues to ensure findings from the Population and Poverty Research Initiative’s research can inform development policies.

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.
