(February 2012)The Population and Poverty (PopPov) Research Network brings together researchers who are examining how population dynamics affect economic outcomes, primarily in African countries. The overarching vision is one of a Network where results, methodological advances, and policy impacts are shared across research teams and eventually translated into policy recommendations.
The 6th Annual PopPov Conference was held in Accra, Ghana, in January 2012. Participants presented research on population, reproductive health, and economic development; identified gaps in evidence and methods that inhibit the development of sound policies on population and economic development; and discussed examples of the influence of research on policies and how to communicate research findings to policymakers.
In this video, participants share their reflections on the conference, the importance of the PopPov Network and its research, and how to connect research findings to policy.
