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.


Rethinking population communication

Long overdue, there is a resurgence of interest in population communication and information activities. This is much welcomed because it is time to reconfirm the significant role of communication in the success of national population programmes, and to take stock of the field of population communication. Taking stock does not mean making yet another comprehensive review of past research and programmes; many others have already com- piled excellent assessments (Johnson, Wilder and Bogue, 1973; Echols, 1974; Saunders, 1977; Rogers, Solomon and Adhikarya, 1982; Snyder, Kim and Rogers, 1985; ICOMP, 1986). Instead, what is needed is a focused analysis of the present situation.
