World Population Day

Awareness of global population issues, world population day is observed every year on July 11th. Mainly two things are focused on the celebration, raising awareness on exploding world population and informing about reproductive health and rights are prioritized.

Since 1989, World Population Day has been celebrated on July 11 every year to address population issues around the world.Interestingly, on July 11, 1987, on the occasion of the world's population reaching about 5 billion, the Population Summit announced the celebration of this day.

It took about 300,000 years for the population to reach one billion since the creation of the human species on earth. Coming to Population Day 2023, one billion people have been added in the last 12 years. Along with this, it was recently announced that the world's population has reached eight billion. According to the United Nations Population Report published on the occasion of World Population Day, it is estimated that the world's population reached eight billion on November 15, 2022.

Population- Opportunity or challenge?
Controversy has begun over whether population growth is an opportunity or a challenge. Many of us are taught that population growth is bad and needs to be controlled, according to a new curriculum brought to schools by His Majesty's Government in 2056 BS.

But population growth is not always negative, now that the country's future has reached a negative point due to its declining population in the most developed countries of the world, it has created a frightening situation. This is because people are more interested in work, development, and innovation than in reproduction. Maybe, the population day of 2020 will start to advocate on both sides of population growth and address the lower birth rates of the majority of super developed nations in the globe.
