WATCH: Demographic Dividend Webinar Featuring Dr. David Canning

Aug 31, 2022

The inaugural session of the Demographic Dividend (DD) Luminaries Event Series co-hosted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health, the Demographic Dividend Initiative, and the 2022 International Conference on Family Planning is available to watch NOW.

Earlier this month, economist and early pioneer of DD research Dr. David Canning, who coined the term “demographic dividend” along with fellow Harvard economist David Bloom, joined us to discuss:

  • Population age structure
  • Economic growth
  • Women’s empowerment
  • Key DD indicators
  • & more

In his interview and Q&A, Dr. Canning talks about how he initially started researching the DD and gives country-specific examples of how people are making progress toward achieving the DD around the world.
