These are the proceedings of a meeting held at the Assemblée Nationale in Paris, France, September 22-23, 1997, on issues concerning population policies and international assistance. The 26 contributions are organized into five sections. The first section is general in nature and has papers on the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, family planning in francophone Africa and Asia, European population problems, the demographic situation in Africa, the demographic transition in Viet Nam, and population policies in the Maghreb countries. The second section examines the relationship between population and development, with papers on reproductive health, fertility declines, African migrations, polygamy, demography and poverty in Haiti, population and conflict in Rwanda, and Africa's future. The third section looks at the demand in the developing countries for family and population policies. The fourth section examines how the needs of developing countries can be harmonized with the resources available from the developed countries. A final section provides additional papers on the demographic situation in Africa and in Madagascar, the situation in Algeria, the need for legislation on reproductive health and family planning in Africa, and the implications of the Cairo commitment to support the reproductive health approach. The text of an appeal for action agreed upon at the conference is included.
