January 30, 2019-To help explain the concept of the DD, the Gates Institute developed a 2-minute animated video that highlights the crucial components a country needs to put in place in order to harness the DD. Building on various existing DD resources, mainly from UNFPA, this video was developed to explain the DD concept in simple and straightforward terms, using animations to make it more engaging. This video was used to introduce the ICFP plenary on family planning’s return on investment (ROI) at the ICFP in Kigali.

The video is available on the Gates Institute’s YouTube channel and on the homepage of demographicdividend.org, and you are invited to share it with your colleagues and to use it as a material for any DD-related events or promotions.
