Where: United Nations Headquarters, New York

The Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations, jointly with the East-West Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, is organizing an expert group meeting on “Policy responses to low fertility” that will be held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York during 2-3 November 2015. The expert group meeting will build on a series of 18 papers that have been prepared by academic experts from countries of Asia, Europe and North America, with funding support from the Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs (KIHASA) through the East-West Center.

The purpose of the expert group meeting is to broaden the discussion and the impact of these studies by involving other stakeholders, including academics, policymakers, and representatives of selected UN agencies and international organizations. The meeting aims to distil lessons learned and policy guidance for countries experiencing low fertility and the consequent ageing of their populations, and for those that are likely to face these challenges in the not too distant future.

In addition to the expert group sessions, there will be a livestreamed Briefing for Member States on November 3, 2015 from 1:00-2:30 p.m.
