Administrative History1974 was designated 'Population Year' to focus attention on the problem of world over-population at international, national and local levels. A global conference on the theme was held in Bucharest in August 1974, attended by Aberdeen figures Sir Dugald and Lady May Baird.
DescriptionBrief notes outlining the activities of the United Nations, World Health Organisation, Unesco and the Food and Agriculture Organisation, in the area of world demographics and population control, taken at a meeting of the United Nations Association, 14 March 1974. The meeting place is not given - it seems most likely that these notes were taken by Mary Esslemont during the meeting, rather than presented as a talk.
