Abstract:This dissertation examines the role that communication can play to aid economic and social development in the less developed countries of Africa, Asia, and Latin America in general, and Nigeria in particular. An analysis of the problems and prospects of development in these countries reveals that the basic challenge is to prevent rapid population growth from neutralizing, or even reversing, improvements already made in per capita levels of living. In addition, further improvement in the levels of living of the populations also demand deliberate population planning. Hence, most of these countries have national family planning policies and programs. Therefore, the role of communication in this development effort is to inform people about population constraints to economic and social development and to motivate them to practice birth spacing.
