The rate of increase of people claiming Pacific ancestry is much higher than for the total population (Figure 2). The Australian population increased by % between and , and by % between and Pacific Islands, island geographic region of the Pacific comprises three ethnogeographic groupings— Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia—but conventionally excludes the neighbouring island continent of Australia, the Asia-related Indonesian, Philippine, and Japanese archipelagoes, and the Ryukyu, Bonin, Volcano, and Kuril island arcs that project seaward from Japan.
This book discusses social innovations by cooperatives from the Asia and Pacific region and addresses the questions like what are the distinctive features of social innovations by cooperatives and how social innovations bring in changes in the process and outcome of development.

This book provides contemporary regional science perspectives on population change and its socio-economic consequences in the Asia-Pacific region.
This region is highly diverse in terms of key demographic indicators such as population size, growth, composition and distribution. This volume brings together a range of contributions that provide contemporary regional science perspectives on population change and its socio-economic consequences in the Asia-Pacific region.
This region accounts for close to two-thirds of the world’s population and is highly diverse in terms of key demographic indicators such as population. This chapter provides an introduction to the discussion of demographic changes, issues and models in the Population change in the Pacific region book region that are the focus of this book.

There is arguably no more significant threat to the Pacific Islands than climate change, and through the Pacific Resilience Program, projects across the region are helping to strengthen Pacific Island countries’ Fiji, the World Bank supported the government to prepare a comprehensive assessment of the country’s vulnerability to climate change inand in.
InChina had the highest population of all Asia Pacific countries or regions, with a total population of just under million people. International Labour Organization. As the Asia-Pacific region is facing rapid demographic change, it is essential that population dynamics are taken into account in the formulation of development policies.
The potential for a demographic dividend remains strong in many countries in the region, but requires that appropriate measures are put in.
It is projected that by more than half of the population in the Pacific will live in urban centres due to increasing rural-to-urban migration and the region’s high birth rates. Despite these trends, urban development issues are not a priority for many PICs and only a few have developed formal policies to address urbanisation, such as.

Trends in population ageing The Asia-Pacific region is undergoing profound and rapid population changes. All countries in Asia and the Pacific are in the process of ageing at an unprecedented pace, although the timing and pace of this transition varies across the region.
This process of ageing is. The region’s demographic transition, which first produced a “youth bulge,” will eventually result in population aging as the “boom generation” passes through the age structure.
However, this age structure is not the same across the Asian continent due to huge intraregional differences in both the timing and magnitude of change. In the Oceania / Pacific region, the highest population densities are found on the smallest island groups.
Sometimes there is more change in temperature on a daily basis (high to low or day to night) than winter to summer. 37 million. The population of the Oceania / Pacific region is approximately.
Similarly, the Buddhist share of the Asia-Pacific population is expected to drop from nearly 12% in to less than 10% in The proportion of the region’s population belonging to folk religions also is forecast to decline, from 9% in to about 7% in Factors Driving Change.
Over half the world's population lives in the Asia-Pacific region. InAsia hosted 53 million out of the world's million migrants according to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
In the s and s, international migration from Asia grew dramatically. Book Description. The Pacific region is in the final stage of the demographic transition with declining fertility and expanding life expectancy, where significant changes in population size and age distribution, i.e.
"aging" have been and will be witnessed. They are unprecedented and going to affect economic growth in various ways. Recent regional climate change projections have consequences for human systems, particularly for developing countries in Asia and the Pacific.
Asia and the Pacific continues to be exposed to climate change impacts. Home to the majority of the world’s poor, the population of the region is particularly vulnerable to those impacts. This is a list of islands in the Pacific Ocean, collectively called the Pacific major groups of islands in the Pacific Ocean are Melanesia, Micronesia and ing on the context, Pacific Islands may refer to countries and islands with common Austronesian origins, islands once or currently colonized, or indigenous inhabitants of the Pacific Islands are.
WHO defines overweight as having a body mass index (BMI) equal to or more t and obesity as a BMI equal to or more than Diabetes prevalence among adults in the Pacific region is among the highest in the world; 47% in American Samoa compared with 13% in mainland USA, and it ranges from 14% to 44% elsewhere in the region.
Graph, map and compare more than 1, time series indicators from the World Development Indicators. Over the past half century, Asia has massively entered the global migration stage. This expansion of population mobility within and from the region reflects the extraordinarily rapid economic development and social transformations much of Asia has gone through as well as globalization processes.That is, they focus on how the many different groups in the Pacific Northwest, particularly women and people of color, were affected by the war and the numerous events related to the war, and how the war years of initiated a series of changes with long-term implications for the development of the region through the remainder of the.
This group proposed that the region needed a vision for its future. Leaders agreed, declaring at their meeting in Auckland in late that “the Pacific region can, should and will be a region of peace, harmony, security and economic prosperity, so that all of its people can lead free and worthwhile lives ”.
