Towards the Third Cycle of APEID. Final Report. Regional Consultation Meeting on the Asian Programme of Educational Innovation for Development (7th, Bangkok, Thailand, June 1-10, 1981).

The Seventh Regional Consultation Meeting on the Asian Programme of Educational Innovation for Development (APEID) was devoted to a tripartite review of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) component of APEID. APEID had undertaken four development themes in its second cycle: universalization of education at early school levels and functional education for out-of-school youth and adults; integrated rural development; productive skills; and health and nutrition. The four themes were found to have continuing relevance to the concerns of the countries. The gains from APEID were regarded as high although their spread among the countries and the Associated Centres was, not surprisingly, uneven. The Meeting recommended eight programme areas for APEID's third cycle (1982-1986) which fell into two clusters: first were programme areas in which education was linked to a development goal, including education itself as a development goal. The second cluster comprised programme areas which were in the nature of infrastructure development and contribute as such to a whole range of development goals. The document includes group discussions and reports on programme areas, agenda items, and an appendix listing innovative projects of some of the Associated Centres for 1982-1986. (BRR)
