POPULATION GROWTH


Item #d93dec141

Population growth was the topic of a meeting held in New Delhi last October by scientific academies of the world. Most signed a statement calling for zero population growth "within the lifetime of our children." (See Reports/Gen. Int.) A notable exception was the African Academy of Sciences, which holds that population growth is not a problem in Africa, and that population remains an important resource for development there. The United Nations will hold a major conference on population and development next September in Cairo. (See Nature, p. 3, Nov. 4 1993; New Scientist, p. 8, Nov. 6 1993; Global Environ. Change Rep., pp. 1-3 (feature article), Nov. 12 1993.
