Action at Sub-National Levels for to Achieve the Demographic Dividend

Countries are now generating a wealth population data, but these data have yet to be fully utilized in the formulation of population policies and programmes at sub-national levels, something that was envisaged during the 1994 ICPD. The main obstacle to achieving this goal has been the lack of robust data at sub-national levels and inadequate capacity to conduct small area estimations and modelling using population data. These issues have limited efforts to fully integrate population issues in development planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. This session will provide a platform for the exchange of knowledge and best practices, where countries can learn from those who have been able to produce and effectively utilize sub-national data.
