World Bank

For Dissemination Of Research On Population Dynamics And Development In Sub-Saharan Africa

The Africa Region at the World Bank is conducting research to support the needs of sub-Saharan African countries to capitalize on development opportunities created by changes in the population structure. The objectives of the analyses are to clarify concepts and provide analytical findings, demonstrate how findings can be translated into policies that can harness the impact of changes in population trends for economic development, and provide strategies for implementing policies. The Hewlett Foundation’s funds would support dissemination of the research at the country level to ensure that the findings guide country-level action. The World Bank will engage with government officials and other persons and organizations of influence, including academicians, civil society representatives, the media, and development partners in targeted countries. In addition, the World Bank will take advantage of existing platforms such as country-level technical assistance and World Bank Institute courses that bring together experts from different countries to interact with bank staff and global experts. To capture the attention of these decision makers and influential entities, the World Bank plans to collaborate with partners to produce policy briefs and visual tools based on the analytical work.
