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 conferences include various capacity building activities targeted at young scholars and provide opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing among researchers, policymakers, programme managers, international development partners, and other key stakeholders in the population field.
The seventh African Population Conference will be jointly hosted by the Government of South Africa and UAPS between 30 November and 4 December 2015 on the theme “Demographic Dividend in Africa: Prospects, Opportunities and Challenges”.
