Third Bellagio Conference on Population, May 10-12, 1973. Working Papers.
Rockefeller Foundation, New York, NY.
The document contains papers presented at a conference on global population trends. Conference participants, who represented international agencies and governments in developing nations, investigated social determinants of population trends, population policy, and population program assistance. Eleven papers are presented. Topics discussed include status of population development, sociopolitical implications of family planning, population agency activities, social research and population policy, medical developments in the field of contraception, collection and analysis of demographic data, and population education programs. A summary of conference proceedings indicates that population problems are (1) closely related to each nation's development process, (2) more complex than is generally understood, (3) best understood by scholars in countries where problems are most severe, and (4) in need of more social research.
