Camp, Sharon L., Ed.; And Others
This booklet contains reports presented by delegates from Mexico, Egypt, China, Bangladesh, Italy, the Philippines, Zaire, and Indonesia to the International Conference on Population and the Urban Future held in Rome, Italy, on September 1-4, 1980. An introductory statement by the Executive Director of the United Nations Fund for Population Activities describes world trends in urbanization, problems associated with urban growth, and future prospects for urban planning. The country statements discuss individual countries' current urban situations, problems of rapid population growth in urban areas, and policies and plans that each government has formulated to eliminate or minimize the problems in the future. The booklet also includes highlights of the Rome Declaration on Population and the Urban Future, which was drawn up at the conference. (MJL)
