Our Growing Population
It is estimated that the world population is about 2.6 billion people on October 24 October 1945, the founding date of the United Nations. The world population reached 5 billion in 1987 and 6 billion in 1999 and in October 2011, the global population was estimated at 7 billion. A global movement of "7 Billion Action" has been launched to mark this milestone. By the middle of 2015, the world population reached 7.3 billion; It means that the world has added about a billion people over twelve years. This striking growth was largely caused by an increase in the number of people living in the age of fertility and accompanied by significant changes in fertility rates, which increased urbanization and accelerated migration. These trends will have broader implications for generations. In this study, we will examine the causes and effects of rapid population growth and the studies that the United Nations has done for the solution of this problem. First, we will examine the reasons for the rapid population growth after the information on the regions where the population growth rate is high and the population is intensive, and finally the studies of the United Nations for the solution of the problem.
