This analysis was developed within the GGS Fellowship Programme launched by United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA Moldova) in November 2021 with the purpose to conduct in-depth targeted analysis based on GGS to support the authorities to design data-driven policies and build demographic resilience in the Republic of Moldova.
The Generations and Gender Program is implemented by United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA Moldova) in partnership with the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Republic of Moldova, the National Bureau of Statistics, the Interdisciplinary Institute of Demography in the Netherlands (NIDI).
The program is funded by the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, the India-UN Development Partnership Fund and UNFPA Moldova. The Generations and Gender Survey (GGS) is the first and the most complex longitudinal demographic study conducted so far in more than 24 countries and is part of the international program coordinated by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Institute of Demography (NIDI).
The conclusions of this study will support the decision makers to better understand the demographic changes in the Republic of Moldova, so that the authorities can develop people-centered demographic policies tailored to people’s needs. At the same time, the conclusions of this analysis will be used by the authorities to identify measures to transform the demographic crisis into an opportunity, to support the country’s development and to promote demographic resilience in Moldova.
