The first of three related monographs resulting from a Unesco regional literacy workshop in Asia, this booklet provides information useful to those designing national programs in literacy training for underdeveloped and developing nations. Following an introduction, the booklet discusses the formulation of both policy guidelines and policy statements bearing upon literacy and adult education. The political will and the role of leadership in such programs are also discussed. The major portion of the booklet is divided into two parts. The first part discusses principles of planning with special reference to literacy and adult education, including planning literacy and adult education as an integral part of the total life-long learning system; the reconciliation of national needs and local needs; and ensuring the flow of information. The second section discusses the planning process, including needs assessment, objectives and target groups, and funding and resource mobilization. A discussion of the training delivery system and program evaluation and feedback conclude the booklet. (HTH)
