Population Education in Asia: A Source Book.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and Oceania.
Designed as a resource guide for educators and curriculum developers, this book formulates the knowledge base for school curriculum in population education; presents a body of concepts and data pertaining to the Asian region which is useful as a basis for selected aspects of a curriculum in population education; and provides stimulus, and possibly serves as an exemplar, for the development of national source books. Five paperbound books comprising this source book are contained in a cardboard cover. The first book introduces the source book. The second book is an orientation to population education and examines the nature of population developments in Asia and the nature and role of the knowledge base in the curriculum development process. The third book presents a general picture of the demographic situation in Asia in an historical context and introduces the users to selected demographic concepts and methodological tools. The fourth book explores the interrelationships between population growth and selected issues of socioeconomic development in the region. The fifth book contains reference tables and charts, bringing together statistical data and materials which may be helpful as basic reference materials for the content areas treated in other books.
