An architecture of solutions to tackle depopulation

Over the next decade, Serbia's population could decrease by 6.7 percent - the steepest decline in the Western Balkans, according to a study commissioned by UNDP. Tackling depopulation has historically prompted fertility policies that provide financial incentives for families to have more children. But when children grow up, they may still leave. This has led UNDP to work in radically different ways to address the challenge - and design integrated solutions that can help build a more sustainable future. Borrowing from the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra and its studio approach, UNDP is supporting Serbia to come up with a strategic vision and a ‘top 10 list' of actionable interventions to help the country get there.
