dc.description.abstract<p>The Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), at its forty-seventh session, in 1991, observed that &ldquo;migration from rural to urban areas continued at a rapid pace in many countries of the region, and it was often beyond the capacity of towns, cities and metro? politan areas to cope with the increasing numbers. That had resulted in serious environmental problems and shortages of basic urban services. In that regard, the Commission, stressing that an adequate response to those problems required access to reliable data and information for plan? ning purposes, urged the secretariat to undertake policy-related research to assess the impact of population redistribution as a basis for effective urban planning.&rdquo;</p> <p>In response to those concerns, the project on trends, patterns and implications of rural-urban migration in the ESCAP region was formulated by ESCAP and funded by the United Nations Popula? tion Fund (UNFPA). The major purpose of the project was to conduct detailed analysis of rural- urban migration, based on results of the 1990-1991 round of population censuses.</p>
