Global Meeting on Population and the Generational Economy, August 2020
Presentation: Latif Dramani, Sadou Doumbo, Budgeting sensitive to Demographic Dividend in West and Central Africa
Since the resolutions adopted at the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) held in Cairo, Egypt and the AU roadmap in 2017, the integration of population dynamics in development policies has become a priority, in particular for African countries. Thus, countries are resolutely engaged in the dynamics of capturing the demographic dividend because of the current structure of their population. In fact, most African countries, especially those members of the SWEDD project, are currently in the demographic transition phase. However, as the countries' strategic plans and development priorities are relatively different, the degree of integration of demographic dividend issues can be different and vary from country to country. To address the question of the linkage of the demographic dividend to the budget of the countries, the operationalization of the demographic dividend requires the use of budgetary instrument. The main objective of this paper is to present the normative framework used to link state budget to demographic dividend. The results obtained in the case of Mali suggest a good match between the budget and the index for monitoring demographic dividend.
