The IUSSP Scientific Panel on Population and Poverty examines the inter-relations between demographic processes and economic well-being. Demographic processes are treated as cause and as consequence. Both macro-level and micro-level relationships are of interest, although the primary focus of the Panel's activities will be on micro-level relationships. The Panel places special priority on research that can inform policy, in keeping with the current emphasis on poverty reduction.
The previous Panel on Population and Poverty brought together demographers, health scientists, and economists to organize seminars on "Poverty, Programs, and Demographic Outcomes" and on "HIV/AIDS and Poverty". This panel plans to continue this work by organizing seminars on reproductive health and poverty reduction, internal migration and poverty, and demographic ageing and poverty.
