The United Nations announced that the world’s population will reach an historic 7 billion people on Oct. 31, 2011. This compares to the date when the world population hit 1 billion people in 1804. It took 123 years to add the next billion, but less than a century to cruise past the next four billion — from 2 billion people in 1927 to 6 billion people in 1999.  The United Nations released its “2010 Revision of the World Population Prospects” in which they raised their previous global demographic projections and the 7 billion figure comes just 12 years since the total reached six billion – with official estimates saying the figure will top eight billion in 2025 and 10 billion before the end of the century. According to the United Nations the 6 billions figure was reached on October 12, 1999 (celebrated as the Day of 6 Billion) .


And it is most likely the baby will be born in the Asia-Pacific region – where the population growth rate is higher than anywhere else in the world.  Of the 2.3 billion people the UN believes will be added by 2050, more than one billion will live in sub-Saharan Africa. The Indian subcontinent will add some 630 million people.  The U.N. projections show some striking changes in countries’ projected populations for 2050. Forty countries’ populations are projected to at least double in the next 40 years, including Afghanistan, Iraq, and Yemen. Nigeria’s population for 2050 is projected to jump by 150 percent, from 158 million to 390 million. It will mean less land and water available for each person. Poorer people, who tend to depend more on natural resources, will bear the brunt as they will not be able to compete with the rich.   The major issues will be how to feed the new arrivals, which will see the need for new varieties of improved crops.  Thanks to Free Things to Do in Chicago for this  information.
