Asia-Pacific Population Journal

For over two decades, the Asia-Pacific Population Journal (APPJ) has been taking the pulse of population and social issues unfolding in the region. Published by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), APPJ brings out high quality, evidence-based and forward-looking articles relevant for population policies and programmes in Asia and the Pacific. Prominent population experts, award-winning demographers, as well as lesser known researchers have been contributing articles, documenting over the years the evolution of thinking in this important sphere.


Population strategies for the 1990s

A note by the ESCAP secretariat to the forty-seventh session of the Commission, which will be held at Seoul, Republic of Korea, from 1 to 10 April 1991, reviews a variety of topics related to population. These include a survey of the population situation in the region, including policies and programmes; the state of socio-economic development in the region and development issues closely linked with population, such as the status of women, quality of population, environment, poverty and rural-urban migration. It also considers various multidisciplinary strategies and programmes of the secretariat such as cross- disciplinary training, multidisciplinary research, technical advisory services and population information.
