Experts from the Center for Demographic Studies of the University of Havana (CEDEM) called for a greater integration of specialists and researchers in Ciego de Ávila for the implementation of the Cuban policy of attention to demographic dynamics.
This was confirmed by Dr. Iliana Benítez Jiménez, coordinator of the country’s Demographic Observatories, who insisted that the approach should be more comprehensive and inclusive.
The above transcended in the Manuel Ascunce Domenech pedagogical headquarters, of the Ciego de Avila house of high studies, where the governmental challenges of the territory in terms of active aging, fertility, mortality and early pregnancy were also presented.
The topic of labor resources, incorporation to work, women’s advancement, as well as housing and human settlements also captured the attention of the debate, which sets guidelines for decision making in local governments.
The Demographic Observatory of Ciego de Ávila, attached to the Máximo Gómez Báez University, monitors both external and internal migratory flows, the latter being the most important for the future strategic development of this central province.
