Call for Papers for the 8th African Population Conference
Every four years, The Union for African Population Studies (UAPS) organizes a general conference on the African population. The aim of this conference is to share and disseminate research evidence on population and development issues and explore ways for applying the research evidence to improve policies and programs aimed at uplifting the well-being of people in Africa. The conference provides an opportunity for networking and knowledge sharing among researchers, policy makers, program managers, international development partners, and other key stakeholders in the population field. The conference includes various capacity building activities targeted at young scholars.
The eighth African Population Conference will be jointly hosted by the Government of Uganda and UAPS between November 18 and 22 November 2019 on the theme “Harnessing Africa’s Population for Sustainable Development: 25 years after Cairo and Beyond”.
We invite submissions for research papers, assessments of best practices, proposals for workshops, posters and exhibitions under the sessions grouped across the 16 sub-themes and sessions listed below.
