An architecture of solutions to tackle depopulation
Over the next decade,Serbia's population could decrease by 6.7 percent-the steepest decline in theWestern Balkans, according to a study commissioned by UNDP.
Tackling depopulation has historicallyprompted fertility policies that provide financial incentives for families tohave more children. But whenchildren grow up, they may still leave. This has led UNDP to work in radically different ways to addressthe challenge-and design integrated solutions that can help build a more sustainable future. Borrowingfrom the FinnishInnovation Fund Sitra and its studio approach, UNDP is supporting Serbia to come upwith a strategic vision and a ‘top 10 list' of actionable interventions to help the country get there.
