HUMAN CAPITAL EFFECTS OF COVID-19 AND PROSPECTS FOR ATTAINING THE DEMOGRAPHIC DIVIDEND
The session will illustrate the short- and long-term human capital effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting implications for country efforts to achieve a demographic dividend (DD).
A panel of experts will share emerging data and insight on the impact of COVID-19 on key pillars of the DD, including access to family planning, fertility, quality education, labor force participation, and women’s economic empowerment, in countries across Africa and Asia. Panelists will also highlight innovative approaches to mitigate these effects and sustain progress towards the DD. Submit questions for the panelists on the sidebar.
MODERATORS: Elizabeth Leahy Madsen, Allen Kabagenyi, and Kaitlyn Patierno
