The current world population of 7.6 billion is expected to grow by another 2.2 billion by 2050. Factors such as uneven advances in implementation of health care, variations in family planning, changing reproductive behavior, devastations of war, disease, and famine affect countries in different ways. Some countries end up with disproportionately aging populations and others with an overabundance of children and young people compared with workers and retirees. So, how can population and resources be brought into balance?
This module will teach learners how to develop action plans to address the production of food and resources and manage uneven population growth. We will also explore the importance of Eco-Cities in a growing population.
