The main objective of this workshop was to provide training experience with the development of audiovisual materials for neo-literates--e.g., videotape recordings, slides with narration, radio programs, folk media, and printed materials--that would be relevant to the needs of the rural people, mainly focusing on women. Introductory materials provide a summary of the proceedings of the workshop, including the workshop objectives, the opening session, the workshop officers and orientation, the presentation and discussion of working papers, explanation of AJP materials, the process of group work, national follow-up activities, the closing ceremony, and recommendations. The first of three sections presents three group reports covering the field surveys and the preparation and field testing of materials developed by the participants. The second section contains the papers presented at the workshop: (1) "How To Develop and Utilize Literacy Materials for Women" (Varsha Das); (2) "How To Develop Video Literacy Material" (Nalinee Sitasuwan); (3) "How To Develop Materials Using Folk Media such as Puppets" (Somsak Kanha); and (4) "Analysis and Identification of Problems and Needs of the Villages--by NP Method."

Sakya, Unesco); "AACU (Asian Cultural Centre for Unesco) Report"; and country reports from Bhutan, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, and Thailand.
