Fifth Annual PopPov Conference on Population, Reproductive Health, and Economic Development

Conference Agenda:
 
Summaries of Current Research in the PopPov Research Network

The Fifth Annual PopPov Conference on Population, Reproductive Health, and Economic Development took place in Marseille, France, January 19-21, 2011. The Institut de Recherche pour le Développement and Agence Française de Développement, hosted the 2011 meeting.

The meeting brought together the world’s most prominent researchers on population and economic development for the fifth annual gathering of an international Community of Research Practice (CoRP) on Population and Economic Development. Invitees included experts from around the world, with a particular emphasis on African economics researchers and those conducting research in Africa.

As at past conferences of this network, participants learned about ongoing and planned research on how population dynamics and reproductive health affect economic development, and worked together to identify gaps in evidence and methods that inhibit development of sound policies on population, family planning, and reproductive health. We also discussed how to communicate research to decision makers for evidence-based policy.

Last year’s conference in Cape Town demonstrated the maturity of the PopPov Research Network. We have grown substantially over the past five years and now include a diverse group of researchers whose work has great potential to influence population policies and programs in Africa. As we begin to move knowledge and research towards synthesis and communication to other audiences, our conference agenda has become increasingly nuanced. This year, for the first time, we formalized the conference planning process and selected a diverse group of researchers to comprise a scientific program steering committee. (See below for a list of committee members.) Later this summer, the committee will put out a call for abstracts and will post the announcement on this website.
