World Population Day: Populations in Africa Surge

As the United Nations prepares to mark World Population Day (July 11) , the demographic of nations around the globe is dramatically changing.

Growing populations in India and Africa are leading to greater development but they both also face the brunt of climate change.

The United Nations estimates that of the world’s 8 billion population India is now home to 1.425 billion people, matching and at some point, is expected to surpass China’s.
