    The Indonesia experience, statement made at the Special Convocation, University of Indonesia, Jakarta, Indonesia, 14 February, 1981.

    New York, N.Y., UNFPA, [1981]. 4 p. (Speech Series No. 62)

    This statement reviews some of Indonesia's achievements in the field of population and development. The family planning program has made considerable progress, which is reflected in the decline of the birth rate from 45/1000 in the latter 1/2 of the 1960s to 35/1000 in the 1980s. In 1976 less than 20% of married women in the reproductive ages were using contraception to limit their family size. This has now risen to over 30%. The establishment of BKKBN--the National Family Planning Co-ordinating Board has played a major role in enlisting community participation in both urban and rural areas, in establishing projects for community-based distribution of contraceptives, and in integrating local leadership support of the program. The UNFPA contributed US$15 million of assistance in 1972. In 1980, US$30 million was approved for 5 years to support the current program. This contribution is but a small portion of the self-reliant effort the Government is committing to national family planning.

    Statement to the Population Commission, statement made at the Twenty-first Session of the United Nations Population Commission, United Nations, New York, 29 January 1981.

    New York, N.Y., UNFPA, [1981]. 5 p. (Speech Series No. 61)

    This statement reviews some of the developments in the field of population programs and international assistance. UNFPA requires that population policies be considered as an integral part of the overall development policies. Much of the credit for the positive acceptance around the world of population as a vital and essential component in development planning and as an important area of international assistance belongs to the Population Commission and to the foundations it has laid for a United Nations program in this area during its 34 years of work.
