The Population and Poverty (PopPov) Research Network's Capstone Research Conference on Population, Reproductive Health, and Economic Development will take place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia June 24-26. This Conference will bring together academic researchers, funders, and policymakers from around the globe who are interested in how population dynamics impact economics outcomes.
The agenda includes seven paper sessions covering topics ranging from "Evaluative Strategies for Empowering Women and Girls" to "Economic Activity, Employment, and Income." A pre-Conference methods workshop will examine issues in measurement and defining causal impact in the field of women's economic empowerment and development. This Conference will provide opportunities to learn about ongoing and completed research on population, reproductive health, and economic development, summarize policy-relevant research results, reflect on the achievements of the PopPov Research Initiative, and discuss the future of the field.
Throughout the week, the PRB team will tweet from the conference using the hashtap #PopPov15. Follow @PopPovNetwork for the latest PopPov Research Network research, news, and opportunities.
