    Guide to sources of international population assistance 1988, fifth edition.

    United Nations Population Fund [UNFPA]

    New York, New York, United Nations Population Fund, 1988. xi, 477 p. (Population Programmes and Projects Vol. 1.)

    This is the 5th edition of the GUIDE to be published. A new edition is issued every 3 years. The GUIDE was mandated by the World Population Plan of Action, adopted by consensus at the World Population Conference held in Bucharest, Romania, in August 1974. Each entry for an organization describes its mandates, fields of special interest, program areas in which assistance is provided, types of support activities which can be provided, restrictions on types of assistance, channels of assistance, how to apply for assistance, monitoring and evaluation of programs, reporting requirements, and address, of organization. International population assistance is broadly construed as 1) direct financial grants or loans to governments or national and non-governmental organizations within developing countries; 2) indirect grants for commodities, equipment, or vehicles; and 3) technical assistance training programs, expert and advisory services, and information programs. To gather information for this edition of the GUIDE, a questionnaire was sent to more than 350 multilateral, regional, bilateral, non-governmental, university, research agencies, organizations, and institutions throughout the world.

    Pacific partners, a guide to United Nations agencies in the Pacific.

    United Nations

    Sydney, Australia, United Nations Information Center, 1985. 97 p.

    This booklet, describing support available from the UN, is a valuable resource for decision-makers and others interested in development issues. The South Pacific, a vast oceanic region of 100s of scatted islands, is rapidly changing. Since the early 1960s, 11 South Pacific countries have attained self-government or independence, and 5 are now numbered among the 159 member states of the UN. New issues and events keep the region is sharp international focus. While technological progress has reduced distances between the islands, the South Pacific countries continue to face many development challenges in health, housing, education, and adequate nutrition and water supplies. Growing urbanization, increased dependence on imported foods, and cash crops for exports are affecting the environmental and cultural patterns of the South Pacific. These issues are of primary concern to both the South Pacific and the UN. Over 30 of the UN family of agencies are cooperating with the governments of the Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Niue, Republic of Palau (Belau), Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, and Western Samoa. The UN provides expertise and training opportunities, as well as capital assistance, to help improve the lives of the South Pacific islanders as they move towards self-sufficiency.

    Inventory of population projects in developing countries around the world 1985/1986.

    United Nations Fund for Population Activities [UNFPA]

    New York, New York, UNFPA, 1987. xi, 826 p. (Population Programmes and Projects V. 2)

    Internationally-assisted population projects funded, inaugurated, or being carried out by multilateral, bilateral, nongovernmental, and other agencies and organizations during the January, 1985--June, 1986 period are described for most developing countries/territories. Most demographic and population data were from UN-sponsored research, including individual government views regarding population; other UN agencies provided data on such topcs as agricultural production density; the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, and the World Bank was the source of some economic data. Funding sources for various projects are generally not indicated: the focus is on which agencies are dowing what. US$ values of project funding are given where possible. Chapter 1 lists country information. Chapter 2 describes regional, interregional, and Global programes in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and Western Asia, and Europe. This information is structured similarly to the country information, with a demographic fact sheet followed by categorized descriptions of organizational assistance projects. Sources and an index are provided.

    Report on developments and activities related to population information during the decade since the convening of the World Population Conference, Bucharest, 1974.

    Hankinson R

    New York, United Nations, 1984 Jun. vi, 52 p. (POPIN Bulletin No. 5 ISEA/POPIN/5)

    A summary of developments in the population information field during the decade 1974-84 is presented. Progress has been made in improving population services that are available to world users. "Population Index" and direct access to computerized on-line services and POPLINE printouts are available in the US and 13 other countries through a cooperating network of institutions. POPLINE services are also available free of charge to requestors from developing countries. Regional Bibliographic efforts are DOCPAL for Latin America. PIDSA for Africa, ADOPT and EBIS/PROFILE. Much of the funding and support for population information activities comes from 4 major sources: 1) UN Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA): 2) US Agency for International Development (USAID); 3) International Development Research Centre (IRDC): and 4) the Government of Australia. There are important philosophical distinctions in the support provided by these sources. Duplication of effort is to be avoided. Many agencies need to develop an institutional memory. They are creating computerized data bases on funded projects. The creation of these data bases is a major priority for regional population information services that serve developing countries. Costs of developing these information services are prohibitive; however, it is important to see them in their proper perspective. Many governments are reluctant to commit funds for these activites. Common standards should be adopted for population information. Knowledge and use of available services should be increased. The importance os back-up services is apparent. Hard-copy reproductions of items in data bases should be included. This report is primarily descriptive rather than evaluative. However, given the increase in population distribution and changes in government attitudes over the importance of population matters, the main tasks for the next decade should be to build on these foundations; to insure effective and efficient use of services; to share experience and knowledge through POPIN and other networks; and to demonstrate to governments the valuable role of information programs in developing national population programs.

    International Development Research Centre, projects 1970-1981.

    International Development Research Centre [IDRC]

    Ottawa, Canada, IDRC, 1982. 384 p.

    The 1115 projects listed in this publication represent 10 years of research activity supported by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), from the 1st year of operation in 1971 to March 1981. In another sense they represent an account of the growing human resources competent to contribute to science and technology in developing countries--an illustration of how technology and skills are acquired in the process of securing a measure of well-being for the world's poor. The subject/area index lists projects according to their specific subjects or field of research and according to country of geographic region. Projects have been indexed using the IDRC Library Thesaurus, which is based on an internationally accepted controlled vocabulary of descriptors used to index and retrieve information about development. A brief project rationale and statement of research objectives is given for each project. The expected duration of the research is given in months, followed by a notation of "active" or "completed". A project is deemed to be completed when the initiating program division is satisfied that the work undertaken during the course of the project is finished. The project recipient organization and location is included, as well as a grant figure representing the IDRC contribution to the research. Program areas within IDRC include agriculture; food and nutrition sciences; cooperative programs; information sciences; social sciences; communications; projects of the Office of the Secretary; Special Governing Board Activities; and those of the Office of the President. Precedence for projects is given to requests from developing countries.
