Children and Adolescents in the Second Development Decade: Priorities for Planning and Action.
United Nations Economic and Social Council, New York, NY.; United Nations Children's Fund, New York, NY.
This United Nations Economic and Social Council study concerns priorities for planning and action during the "Second Development Decade" in relation specifically to children and adolescents in the less developed countries. It has been undertaken in the hope that it may assist individual countries, agencies of the United Nations, and, in particular, the United Nations Children's Fund, in taking a long-range view of the needs of children and adolescents and in integrating these appropriately into the total design of economic and social development. The study summarizes the development trends of the decade of the sixties and the larger economic and social factors which are expected to influence development during the seventies. The second part of the study reviews some of the lessons to be drawn from national and international experience in developing those essential social services, and in seeking greater community participation and voluntary effort in their planning and implementation. The third part of the study attempts to bring together the main conclusions bearing on planning for children and adolescents at the national level. The appendix includes a tentative discussion on priorities for children in different regions of the less developed world. (Author/CS)
