The spirit of the NTA Conference is to bring together researchers and research centers around the world that are at the forefront of research on demographic and economic issues (demographic dividend, aging of the population, women's empowerment, gender, accounting generational, pensions etc.)..

NTA recent conferences were held in 2010 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2012 in Barcelona, Spain and in 2014 in Beijing, China. More than 100 researchers from all continents have participated in these conferences.

AAlso for the first time in Africa and more specifically in Senegal, the Centre for Research in Applied Economics and Finance from the University of Thies (CREFAT) in collaboration with the Centre for Economics and Demography of Aging (Center for the Economics and Demography of Aging -CEDA), University of California - Berkeley, and the East-West Center (East-West Center), University of Hawaii; will host from June 20 to 24, 2016 in Senegal, the 11th International Conference of the Network of National Transfer Accounts (National Transfer Accounts network - NTA).

As in past years, we still expect this year, the active participation of members of donor agencies: the World Bank, the Research Centre for International Development, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, to name a few that have had to participate in the NTA conferences in the past.

Thus, to ensure a very successful international NTA conference in Africa and more precisely in Senegal, sponsors applications are launched at national level. We kindly invite solicited structures to take note of the sponsor application form and choose a sponsor

The goal of the National Transfer Accounts (NTA) project is to improve our understanding of the generational economy. How does population growth and changing age structure influence economic growth, gender and generational equity, public finances, and other important features of the macroeconomy? As part of the NTA project, research teams in more than 40 countries are constructing accounts, measuring how people at each age produce, consume, and share resources, and save for their future. The accounts are designed to complement the UN System of National Accounts, population data, and other important economic and demographic indicators.
