The "information explosion" in the field of population has created a need for proper identification, systematization, dissemination, and utilization of population information. To help meet these needs in the Asian and Pacific regions, the Clearinghouse and Information Section of the Population Division of ESCAP (Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific) is developing a variety of research and action programs. The programs provide information via two regional networks: The Population Correspondents Network and the Population Documentation Centre/Library Network. The Population Correspondents Network is made up of key personnel engaged in the population field who provide ESCAP with up-to-date information about population activities in their organizations and countries. Other ESCAP activities include a bibliographic information exchange, compilation of a regional population and family planning thesaurus, training and consultation, development of microform services, translation services, and distribution of publications of current interest.
