PIDE/UNPFA TRAINING WORKSHOP ON DEMOGRAPHIC METHODS AND TECHNIQUES
(8TH to 11TH AUGUST 2023, ISLAMABAD)
Acknowledging the need to build knowledge and understanding about the dynamics of demography and demographic processes, the PIDE, in collaboration with the UNFPA organised a four-day training workshop on “Understanding Demographic Methods and Techniques for Policymaking” from Tuesday 8th to Friday 11th August 2023. The training workshop primarily acquainted the participants with:
- Basic understanding of demographic theory and its processes,
- Sources of data available for demographic research,
- Measures of fertility, mortality, morbidity, demographic dividend, nuptiality, labour, education and migration, and
- Ways by which demographic processes are linked to policymaking.
The training was attended by early-career officers/representatives from the public sector (both federal and provincial governments), development partners (NGOs, CSOs and INGOs), post-graduate university students, and media personnel.
