Developments in Demographic Training and Research Projects: Aspects of Technical Cooperation.
United Nations, New York, NY. Population Div.
This report was prepared in connection with work related to programs for support for population training in English-speaking countries of Africa. The United Nations Secretariat has so far provided technical assistance for the establishment of demographic training and research centers in 14 English-speaking countries in Africa. In compiling the report, attempts were made to collect information, using the questionnaire format set out in annex I to the present report and distributed to past and present international and national staff, in respect of each project. It was difficult to collect data from Kenya and Nigeria so the data provided is from 12 of the 14 countries. Needs assessments were conducted in each country as they gained independence, in order to make long-range plans for economic development. This report recounts those efforts to provide demographic training. There are eight chapters in the report: (1) "Background to Project Formulation"; (2) "Project Design"; (3) "Project Activities"; (4) "Project Management"; (5) "Staff and Budget"; (6) "Preparing Projects for Self-Sufficiency and Continuity"; (7) "Difficulties Faced in Project Implementation"; and (8) "Impact of Projects on Country Development." Seven annexes are included with the report. (EH)
