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.


The Fifth Asian and Pacific Population Conference: Towards a repositioning of population in the global development agenda?

The Fifth Asian and Pacific Population Conference, held at Bangkok in December 2002, followed a little more than 10 years after the Fourth Asian and Pacific Population Conference, held at Bali. The Bali Conference was one of the regional conferences leading up to the path-breaking International Conference on Population and Development, held at Cairo in 1994, and was important in the context of providing input into the Cairo Conference, but also in its own right as reflecting the consensus among the Member States making up over 60 per cent of the world’s population.
