People from cultures like Bangladesh, where rice is traditionally consumed in large quantities, can be vulnerable to problems associated with an excessive consumption of arsenic-contaminated rice. (...) Professor Haris drew a comparison between relatively high instances of illness resulting from contaminated rice in Bangladesh and the high life expectancy of the Japanese, who also traditionally eat a lot of rice. The difference, he pointed out, is that the Japanese diet is much more diverse and includes a lot of fish and vegetables.

Special topics World Population Prospects: Current projection approach 10 March 2016 Cheryl Sawyer, Lina Bassarsky Population Estimates and Projections Section www.unpopulation.org Regional Workshop on the Production of Population Projections Addis Ababa, 7-11 March 2016 o Calculations using a cohort-component approach o Assumptions about future trends of fertility and mortality are: – Derived primarily from past trends for a given country – Also informed by theories of demographic change and the historical experience of other countries o Alternative future trends have traditionally been described using variants and scenarios o NEW: Alternative future trends are now also depicted using a probabilistic model 2 UN projection methods Probabilistic forecasting o UN projections of fertility and mortality are guided by historical trends in those same variables o Regularities in historical trends have led to theories of demographic change, which give structure to the projection model o The model is calibrated for each country using an estimation procedure that combines the country’s data with that of other countries: – Giving most weight to data from that country, if such data are plentiful – Giving more weight to data from other countries, if no or little data are available 4 Using historical experience o Theories of the demographic transition share certain common points about the historical decline of fertility and mortality, which are reflected in the structure of the UN’s projection model o For fertility, there is a transition from high to low values of the TFR (below 2.0), typically followed by fluctuations and a modest recovery o For mortality, the increase of life expectancy at birth follows an S-curve (slow-rapid-slow change), which remains positive and roughly linear in the final phase 5 Theory Model structure 6 Start of  Phase II Start of  Phase III 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 TF R Time Phase I Phase II Phase III Three phases of TFR trend: Pre‐decline, decline, post‐decline o Rate of TFR decline depends on level of TFR – Peak rate of decline around TFR=5 – Slower decline for TFR > 5 or TFR < 5 o Rate of decline in the TFR, as a function of its current level, is modeled using a double-logistic function, which has an inverted U-shape o Bayesian hierarchical model used to estimate model for the world and for each country o In addition, standard time series methods are used to project future trends 7 Fertility decline model: Phase II Fertility projection for India TFR decline function Probabilistic TFR projections 8 9 Country‐specific estimates of double‐ logistic TFR decline function o Start of Phase III defined by two earliest consecutive 5-year increases when TFR < 2 o Has been observed in 38 countries or areas: 29 in Europe, 7 in Asia (China, Hong Kong, Macao, Japan, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Viet Nam) plus USA and Barbados 10 Post‐transition low‐fertility  rebound:  Phase III o Traditionally, UN projections have included several variants or scenarios: – Variants describe future trends produced by varying key assumptions (e.g. fertility), illustrating sensitivity of results – Scenarios describe hypothetical future trajectories, illustrating core concepts such as population momentum o Bayesian hierarchical model of past trends, combined with time series model of future trends, yields probabilistic depiction of plausible future outcomes 11 Future trends are uncertain Nigeria Total fertility rate Total population 12 Russian Federation 13 Total fertility rate Total population 80% and 95% prediction intervals Source: United Nations, World Population Prospects: The 2015 Revision, 2015 World population projections 14 o UN fertility variants (+/- half child): – Overstate the “uncertainty” of future trends at the global level, and also for some low-fertility countries (TFR < 2) – Understate the “uncertainty” of future trends for high-fertility countries (TFR > 3) 15 What have we learned from the new  approach?

Microsoft Word - Argentina - Foreign Affairs Minister (English) Message of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Worship of the Argentine Republic On the occasion of the commemoration of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, Argentina would like to ratify its desire and commitment with the search for peace. Argentina has traditionally recognized the right of the Palestine People to become a sovereign State, and under that conviction and as a mean to make a contribution to the peace process, in 2010 Argentina recognized Palestine as a free and independent State, within the 1967 borders.
