The Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme has established World Population Day 2022 as a global awareness day for population issues. It was originally inspired by the Day of the Five Billion, which was held on 11 July 1987. The goal of this day is to create public awareness about population issues and promote the work of various population organizations. In addition to promoting awareness of population issues, World Population Day events will be celebrated by people all around the world.
Growing population levels are a pressing concern in the world today, and many social and environmental issues are a result of this growth. The effects of this increase in population can range from pollution to overcrowding living conditions, and from infectious diseases to malnutrition. World Population Day 2022 will focus on these issues and promote action to mitigate the impact of overpopulation. The following are some quotes from experts about the negative effects of an increasing population.
Globally, population issues are a major cause of ill health for women. Each day, approximately 800 women are killed by pregnancy-related complications. World Population Day raises awareness about family planning and reproductive health. These issues are interrelated and affect the way societies plan for their growth. And, of course, the right to health is also a primary concern. Hence, it is important to act on population issues to ensure a healthy and sustainable future.
