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

Looking Back at the Seventh Annual PopPov Conference

The Seventh Annual Research Conference on Population, Reproductive Health, and Economic Development was held Jan. 23 – 26, 2013, in Oslo, Norway. The conference was co-sponsored by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Population Reference Bureau, Fafo, and The Research Council of Norway. The meeting brought together the world’s most prominent researchers on population and economic development, with a particular emphasis on African economics researchers and those conducting research in Africa. Over 100 researchers and policymakers from sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, the United States, South America, and South Asia attended the conference.

As at past conferences, participants:

  • Learned about ongoing and planned research on how population dynamics and reproductive health affect economic development.
  • Identified gaps in evidence and methods that inhibit development of sound policies on population, family planning, and reproductive health.
  • Discussed examples of the influence of research on these policy issues.
