UN Development Account Project

Since the beginning of 2017, within the framework of the United Nations Development Account (10th Tranche), CELADE, Population Division of the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, has been implementing the project Demographic Transition: Opportunities and Challenges to Achieve the SDGs in Latin America and the Caribbean.

To date the project has permitted to construct or update NTA and/or NTTA in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Mexico, and to realize 4 national NTA studies, whose results were disseminated in a series of national workshops (see Meetings and Presentations). In addition, a team from the Analysis of Social and Economic Policy Unit of Bolivia benefitted from a 4-day NTA training.

Currently, under the auspices of the project, the work on producing NTA and related studies is still undergoing in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Peru, and it is expected the respective national workshops will take place over the course of 2019. Furthermore, NTA capacity-building initiatives and sensitization workshops are envisaged in Jamaica and Paraguay.

A regional NTA workshop bringing together NTA researchers and experts from the whole LAC region is planned in the second half of 2019 as a closing activity of the project.
