Asian Studies Seminar : Asia’s dramatically changing demography: some implications Other events...
The Asian region has moved rapidly through the demographic transition since the 1970s, but demographic prospects are very different for East Asia (facing shrinking populations), South Asia (facing substantial further increases) and Southeast Asia (in between). Individual country situations vary enormously, both between and within these three broad regions. In addressing demographic-developmental interrelationships, the countries are best grouped according to their current fertility levels, which are closely correlated with their levels of human development, their projected population increases, and where they stand in relation to the age structure changes contributing to the “demographic dividend”.

In this presentation, the relative speed of demographic change in the different parts of Asia will be compared, their demographic prospects discussed, the implications for their further development assessed, and policy implications addressed. How optimistic can we be about future prospects?
