Rockefeller Foundation, New York, NY.
The document contains papers presented at a meeting to consider global population growth. The purpose of the conference was to promote the exchange of ideas relating to population growth between educators, government officials, and development agency personnel from developing and developed nations. Ten papers are presented. Topics discussed include ways to implement global population policies, social science research on population and development, progress toward new contraceptives, reproduction research, the role of international assistance agencies in family planning, trends in international population assistance, and international population policy. A summary of conference proceedings highlights findings. These include that the field of population studies is changing rapidly, there is more awareness of population problems in the developing world, experts are increasingly convinced that population problems are closely related to development, developing nations are beginning to increase funds for population research, and both developing and developed nations are experiencing a sense of urgency in coping with population problems.
