The Berlin Institute for Population and Development is an independent think tank that researches questions about regional and global demographic changes. The institute was founded in 2000 as a non-profit foundation and has the task to raise awareness about demographic change, promote sustainable development, contribute new ideas to the policy field, and form concepts for solutions to demographic and development policy problems.

The Berlin Institute creates studies, discussion and background papers, prepares scientific information for the political decision-making process, and organises the "Online-Handbook Demography".
