Future Population Growth and Policy Options
[63 kb / PDF]
Date of Publication: September 29, 1999
This paper reviews population projections for the world and its major regions until the year 2050. A brief summary of the latest United Nations projections and their underlying assumptions is presented first. This is followed by a discussion of the implications of the changes in the age composition that accompanies the demographic transition. The concluding section outlines three main policy options for slowing population growth: a) Reduce unwanted fertility and the unmet need for contraception by strengthening family planning programs; b) Reduce the demand for large families through investments in "human development", in particular education, gender equality and child health; c) Address the momentum of population growth by encouraging delays in childbearing.
