United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Principal Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.
This report summarizes the proceedings of the Thirteenth Regional Consultation Meeting on the Asia and Pacific Programme of Educational Innovation for Development (APEID). The meeting's objectives were to: (1) make an overall review of APEID's work during the 5-year period 1987-91; (2) to discuss major educational innovations that have implications for promoting universal primary education, secondary education, and science and technology education, and to prepare assessment criteria; and (3) review the institutional framework and modalities of action of APEID. Part 1 presents the introduction and lists the meeting's format and participants. Part 2 provides an overview of APEID program and activities in the fourth cycle (1987-91). Part 3 offers observations on the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) consultants' report on "Regional Programme on Basic Education for the Fifth Cycle." The report was relevant to the meeting because it presented a basic-education programme for the region as a whole. Part 4 describes major innovative projects in Asia and the Pacific, and offers guidelines for their assessment and wider application. Projects from the following countries are described: Australia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Japan, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Samoa, Socialist Republic of Viet Nam, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Tonga, and Turkey. The final part examines ways to strengthen the institutional framework and modalities of APEID. Appendices contain the meeting agenda, a list of participants and addresses, and a list of major innovative projects in the region. (LMI)
