This measure requires that the actions taken should be articulated with those set forth under priority measure 4.
Possible lines of action
1. Generate up-to-date knowledge on the demographic dynamics of the Afro-descendent population, taking into account social and territorial diversity, with a gender and generational perspective. 2. Integrate the demographic situation of persons of African descent in a cross-cutting manner into the design of policies. 3. Prioritize the allocation of resources in light of Afro-descendent demographic dynamics. 4. Strengthen the institutions responsible for Afro-descendent affairs so as to contribute to the mainstreaming of population issues in policies. 5. Strengthen national capacities (both of State agencies and of Afro-descendent organizations) in population analysis and its inter-relations with development. 6. Establish participatory mechanisms for Afro-descendent populations in the production and analysis of sociodemographic information, in particular within national statistics systems.
