In the history of the world, no century can match the population growth of the last century. We entered the 20th century with less than 2 billion and we have left it and entered the 21st century with more than 6 billion.  Uncontrolled population growth or even growth with a limited control has become a big problem for the developing world. The world is trying to arrest growth and stabilise a minimally acceptable growth to cope with the prevailing socio-economic imbalances which is widening day by day due to shortage of resources. This shortage has been created by the disproportionate increase in the developing countries.  

Will world population stop growing over the present century? Will the 21st century witness long term population decline? Or will the new century see even more population growth than the last? Any of those scenarios is possible.  World population in the present century will reflect starkly different demographic trends around the world; high fertility and mortality and rapid population growth in the Sub-Saharan Africa, for example, and low fertility and mortality and population decline in parts of Europe.  We know a great deal about the factors linked with population change.

These include economic growth or decline; public health interventions; investments in education and environmental protection; the status of women; epidemics and other healthy treats; and access to family planning information and services. Some of these factors are harder to understand and predict than others. Many are intricately interconnected so that a change in one can cause a change in another.  The world peoples have been making concerted and integrated efforts to stabilise population for a sustainable development. We wish every success to the effort.
