HOW GLOBAL POPULATIONS REACHED ITS CURRENT LEVEL
It took 200,000 years for our human population to reach 1 billion—and only 200 years to reach 7 billion. But growth has begun slowing, as women have fewer babies on average. When will our global population peak? And how can we minimize our impact on Earth’s resources, even as we approach 11 billion?
POPULATION GROWTH IS NOW DECLINING
Within next 10 years, there will be 1 billion older people worldwide. By 2050 nearly one in five people in developing countries will be over 60. Check out this infographic by HelpAge International, an agency that helps older people lead dignified and healthy lives to see how the world demographic will change in the coming years. Delve into the latest data on ageing via the HelpAge International website.
