In: UNESCO. Regional Office for Asia and Oceania. Population Education Clearing House. Population education as integrated into development programs: a non-formal approach. Bangkok, Thailand, UNESCO Regional Office for Asia and Oceania, 1980. 1-9. (Series 1, Pt. 3)Abstracts are presented of materials that focus on the issue of population education in Asia's labor sector. The materials reveal that the efforts of mobilizing the labor sector to incorporate population education into their non-formal activities have revolved around trianing of workers, labor management, guidance schemes, production of materials, and provision of family planning services. Population education activities are being carried out through trade union movements, vocational and training programs, cooperatives, rural workers and industrial associations of workers reaching all the professional levels--managers or labor administrators to trade union leaders and workers. These efforts are documented in the manuals, guides, reports, books and booklets which have been abstracted. The International Labor Organization has facilitated the organization and consolidation of efforts of introducing population education into the labor sector at both the regional and the national level.
World employment programme: population and development: a progress report on ILO research with special reference to labour, employment and income distribution. 2nd ed.
Geneva, Switzerland, ILO, 1979. 89 p.Research on population issues in the International Labour Organization started in 1972 as a component of the World Employment Programme (WEP). At the origin of the WEP was a concern that growth in the Third World would be insufficient to the mass of the population. A broadly defined work program on the interrelationships between population, employment, and income distribution evolved into linking of technical cooperation and other action programs utilizing the results of the research program. The major policy issues addressed by the research include: policies to be adopted towards labor supply, in particular female labor; how different aspects of economic and noneconomic activities and their welfare implications can affect labor market policy design; and, design of policies to influence the role and status of women. A systems approach toward economic-demographic relationships is taken. Subjects studied in depth include fertility levels and their association with economic factors, and consumption patterns and their interaction with household size and structure. Many of the most important relationships between population and development have their roots in behavior patterns at the individual, household or community level. The major issues demonstrated to be important are the conceptual issues involved in the notion of labor supply, the inadequacy of neoclassical models based on a dubious idea of the household, and, the need to analyze the sexual division of labor.
