Planning for growing populations by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

17 editions published between 1978 and 1992 in English and French and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic needs and services that the vast masses of the population in developing countries must have to improve their quality of life are examined. Chapter 1 of nine chapters discusses implications of rapid population growth for social and economic planning. Rapid population growth in the developing countries is discussed in chapter 2. Food requirements, the problems of supply and distribution, and nutritional levels are examined in chapter 3 and action programs are analyzed. The fourth chapter on health points out three basic defects in health planning: a neglect of non-medical aspects of health; an excessive concentration on curative medicine; and within curative services, a socially and geographically selective bias. In regard to housing, the focus of chapter 5, there is a need for low-cost and self-help housing. The current dissatisfaction with education, dealt with in chapters 6 and 7, is not the inadequacy of the resources but with how they are used. Employment is dealt with in the last two chapters. Discussed is the need to redistribute employment opportunities, incomes, and assets in favor of the rural poor. (Rm)

Population policy : a new consensus by Robert Cassen( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In preparation for the 1994 UN Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, this review focused on population policies and programs in developing countries, donor governments, and nongovernmental organizations. Future policy objectives must contend with supply and demand issues. Policies in general relate to reducing unmet need for family planning, promoting social and economic development, and addressing population momentum. Empirical research has established that quality family planning programs can have an impact on reducing unmet need and contribute to fertility decline. Programs need to be designed to meet women's needs with respect for religious and cultural beliefs and to offer a variety of methods of contraception, proper medical follow-up, and attention to reproductive health needs and family planning needs of underserved groups such as adolescents. Programs must be voluntary. Multifaceted and integrated programs are more likely to be successful. Access to safe abortion remains on the agenda. Quality must be improved and a range of methods provided. Population policies must also address underlying causes of high fertility. Such programs would be directed to socioeconomic change, improved child survival, increased female education, and increased opportunities for employment and income generation. A final component of population policies emphasizes delayed marriage and the age of childbearing and increased spacing between births. Population issues are primarily ethical issues about what kind of world people want to live in and the living conditions. Political will and the effectiveness of policy options will determine future actions. Donor agencies should agree to devote 4% of concessional aid to population activities, including HIV/AIDS prevention and reproductive health. Social development assistance should also be increased. Nongovernmental agencies have played and continue to play important roles at the grassroots level in development of skills and participation in population activities. Major development agencies such as OXFAM and Save the Children should expand considerably their efforts. France, Canada, Italy, and the United Kingdom also have contributed little in the past and should increase their aid. Japan will be shifting its program support to balance population activities with development efforts. There should be increased involvement with population support from multilateral donors. US policy has shifted, but ways need to be secured to protect international population programs from the fluctuations in political commitment

Making a difference in education : what the evidence says by Robert Cassen( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is working in education in the UK - and what isn't? This book offers a highly readable guide to what the latest research says about improving young people's outcomes in pre-school, primary and secondary education. Never has this issue been more topical as the UK attempts to compete in the global economy against countries with increasingly educated and skilled work-forces. The book discusses whether education policy has really been guided by the evidence, and explores why the failings of Britain's educational system have been so resistant to change, as well as the success stories that have

National and international adjustment( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adjustment, global and national, to promote sustainable growth in the changing world economy is the main theme of this report. Recession and inflation in the industrial countries, together with the rise in oil prices, have been the main forces at work in the world economy in the 1970s. The report examines their effect on developing countries to see how adjustment has been managed and what lessons may be learned for the 1980s. Adjustment occurs through international trade and capital flows and through changes in national production and consumption patterns. The earlier chapters of the report present global and regional projections for the 1980s and consider international aspects of adjustment in trade, energy and finance. It then turns to adjustment problems of different groups of developing countries and a consideration of the prospects for human development
