“The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is the world’s blueprint for a better future for all on a healthy planet. On World Population Day, we recognize that this mission is closely interrelated with demographic trends including population growth, ageing, migration and urbanization.”
WORLD POPULATION DAY 2020: WILL ITS AGENDA GAIN SUCCESS?
World population day is celebrated worldwide on 11th of July every year.
The above agenda is a dream of the UNITED NATIONS and to make it a success we should all contribute towards it.
World Population Day, which seeks to focus attention on the urgency and importance of population issues, was established by the then-Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme in 1989, an outgrowth of the interest generated by the Day of Five Billion, which was observed on 11 July 1987.
By resolution 45/216 of December 1990, the United Nations General Assembly decided to continue observing World Population Day to enhance awareness of population issues, including their relations to the environment and development.
Until the time of Napoleon, there were less than 1 billion people on Earth at any one time. Since the Second World War, we have been adding a billion people to the global population every 12-15 years. Our population is more than double today what it was in 1970.
Current estimates indicate that roughly 83 million people are being added to the world’s population every year. Even assuming that fertility levels will continue to decline, the global population is expected to reach 8.6 billion in 2030, 9.8 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100, according to the medium-variant projection.
WHAT is our future?
As of 2020 the world population is around 7.8 billion. To meet its 2020 world population agenda UN published two infographics suggesting the population estimates by 2100.
Isn’t it crazy right??😜😜🤪🤪
BUT THAT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!!!
Due to the rising deaths worldwide due to the COVID- 19 pandemic according to my projections it will have gradual fall due high death tolling rates and low fertility rate. Hence creating an imbalance in the ratio between birth rate and the death rate there is an 89% chance of not meeting the agenda of sustainable development.
To fulfil the dream of UN as well as our world we should all maintain our health during the pandemic period. Also, the reproductive health should be taken into consideration to make up the fertility rate to build the future generation.
