Although population assistance represents a relatively small share of official development assistance, it influences many other aspects of development planning.
The organisations that comprise the population establishment have a common purpose - the reduction of population growth in the Third World - but they are not homogenous and sometimes have conflicting goals and strategies.
National governments, multilateral agencies, non governmental organizations, foundations, academic centers, and pressure groups all contribute to creating and sustaining what has become a virtual population control industry.
Through scholarships, travel grants, awards and favorable publicity, Third World elites have been encouraged to join the population establishment.
The World Bank, The U.S. Agency for International Development, and the U.N. Fund for Population Activities have pursued specific strategies for pressuring Third World governments to design and implement population policies, most recently in Africa.
