The rate of population growth in the globe is frightening, shattering records every day. Contrary to earlier estimates, a recent research contends that the world’s population may only peak in 2050 at 9 billion people.
The world’s population, which is presently 7.96 billion, will reach an all-time high of 8.6 billion in the middle of the century before declining by over 2 billion by the century’s conclusion, according to a research, if current trends continue.
In the second scenario, dubbed the Giant Leap, experts predict that the population reaches an all-time high of 8.5 billion people by around 2040 and then decreases to about 6 billion people by the end of the century.
The statement went on to say that this is accomplished by significant policy changes regarding food and energy security, inequality, and gender parity in addition to previously unheard-of investments in poverty reduction, notably in the areas of education and health. In this scenario, extreme poverty is eradicated within a generation (by 2060), having a significant effect on the trends in world population.
The authors contend that other well-known demographic estimates frequently minimize the significance of fast economic growth.
