CARISPLAN Abstracts, n7 1983
This quarterly abstracting journal disseminates bibliographic information on Caribbean planning and development literature available through the Caribbean Information System for Economic and Social Planning (CARISPLAN), a cooperative effort of the Caribbean countries. It provides annotated listings of serial publications, books, and other documents such as reports, conference papers, and feasibility studies that provide information relevant to priority areas outlined by the Caribbean Development and Cooperation Committee. The abstracts are preceded by an introduction to the CARISPLAN system and use of the journal, a CARISPLAN information flow diagram, lists of CARISPLAN national focal points and geographic codes for primary countries, a sample entry, and abbreviations used for participating centers. Abstracts are then grouped into six categories: (1) facts, trends, and analyses (basic information and data, extrapolations and forecasts, and existing situations); (2) prescriptions for decision-making; (3) official policies, plans, programs, and arrangements; (4) development action (specific project studies, new project announcements and descriptions, and operational experience); (5) consequences and evaluation; and (6) resources and tools for development. Citations include the document author(s), location of the document, original language title, distribution, primary country codes, and descriptors. Subject, geographic, author, conference, and symbols indexes are included. The period of coverage is 1970 onwards and the system is restricted to documents written in English, Spanish, French, and Dutch. (LMM)
