The World Population Is Expected To Hit 11.2 Billion By 2100

2 posts in this topic

According to United Nations projections, the population growth will mainly be fueled by some of the poorest countries in Africa.

Is the world really overpopulated, or are humans just utilizing resources at an unsustainable rate in irresponsible fashion? Debate persists, but what is known is that by the year 2100, the population of humans on planet Earth is expected to be at an all-time high of 11.2 billion.

Reported by Upriser, the number of people on Earth is expected to grow faster than previously expected, reaching 8.5 billion in just the next 15 years. According to United Nations projections released last Wednesday, the population growth will mainly be fueled by some of the poorest countries in Africa.

It’s difficult to tamper the ever-increasing population when low-income, poverty-stricken areas lack adequate birth control methods and complementary education. Because of this, Africa is expected to account for more than half of the world’s population growth through 2050, to 9.7 from 7.3 billion today. Nigeria, presently the seventh-largest country by population, is expected to surpass the United States and become the world’s third largest by 2050. In this time, 28 African countries could more than double in size population-wise, and 10 – including Angola, Somalia, and Uganda – will more than quintuple. India is also expected to surpass China and become the most populous country by 2022.
