Population Association of America (PAA) 2018 Conference
Event Date: 26 - 28 Apr 2018
Event Location: Denver, Colorado, USA

The African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) will present research findings on adolescent sexuality and the demographic dividend at the recently concluded Population Association of America (PAA) 2018 Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado, between 26 – 28 April 2018. AFIDEP will be represented at the conference by Dr Nurudeen Alhassan, a Research Fellow at the Institute.

The presentation will highlight the slow decline in fertility and low levels of income driven by high youth unemployment and underemployment in these countries, which has and may continue to have an undermining effect on their prospects to maximise the benefits of the demographic dividend. The session will be chaired by Jacques Emina from the University of Kinshasa, and the discussant by Parfait Eloundou- Enyegue from Cornell University.
