Mission Sustainability : Population vs Planet | How can India’s population be stabilised?

The world population is currently 7.8 billion and is increasing at the rate of 80 million per year.

It is projected to reach 9 billion by 2050.

India’s population is 1.39 billion and growing fast.

Illiteracy, poverty, and lack of access to reproductive health care have caused this unsustainable growth in the country’s population.

India is expected to pass China’s population by 2027 to become the world’s most populous country.

This report from WION’s Mission Sustainability looks at the work of the Mobius Foundation in India’s most populous state Uttar Pradesh.

The Foundation’s Project Aakar runs mobile clinics to educate young couples on the benefits of family planning and to distribute contraceptives.

Education and empowerment of women is all important to help to control population growth.
