Demographic Dividend Report Launch

Botswana launched its first Demographic Dividend report. Titled Opportunities and Policy Actions to Maximize the Demographic Dividend in Botswana, the study analyzed Botswana’s population dynamics and age-structure changes in the medium to long-term, and the implications that these aspects will have on the country’s ability to maximize its Demographic Dividend. The study was carried out as a collaborative effort between the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development, University of Botswana, United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Botswana Country Office, with technical support from the UNFPA East and Southern Africa Regional Office (ESARO) provided through the African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) and the Development Policy Research Unit (DPRU) .
