Growth of the population in the last decade
The problem that the world has been facing because of the population growth is still at the same position after even a number of policies have been implemented by the countries around the world to cure it. In 2011, the global population was numbered around the 7 billion mark. At present the number stands at 7.8 billion in the world.
The problem and global issues are still present where they were priorly because very less countries took initiative to control the problem. Most of the countries made a policy and path for the eradication of the problem of population growth but were only limited till the development of the policies only and no further action were taken by the government to further implement the policies.
The statistics experts have been predicting that the population would be reaching to a mark of 8.5 billion in 2030 and approximately to a number of 10.7 billion till the end of the century. The reasons and the factors for the increase in the population of the world have been mainly the level of illiterate percentage and the orthodox mind set of the people who have contributed largely by these sectors of people.
In the country like India, the factors for the increase in the population were many before a decade or so. But now, the condition has become quite better than before as people lately have become aware of the in-house problems which have been developing since a long time. The education served to the students, awareness drives and policies which have been implemented by the government as well as followed by the people proved out to be really very helpful and effective for grabbing a control on the growth rate of the population.
