Wolfgang Lutz: World population and human capital in the twenty-first century

Demographers from the United Nations Population Division and several universities published a recently published paper in Science that argues the world population is unlikely to stop growing this century. They calculate that there is an 80% probability that world population, now 7.2 billion, will increase to between 9.6 and 12.3 billion in 2100, with the median at 10.9 billion. Contrary to the UN projections, the IIASA medium (most likely) scenario indicates that world population will increase to 9.2 billion by 2050, peak at 9.4 billion around 2070 and start a slow decline to 9.0 billion by the end of the century.

IIASA's leading demographer, Wolfgang Lutz, will show how universal primary and secondary education for all young women on this plant will not only slow population growth, but also generate greater economic growth, improve people's health, reduce population's vulnerability to natural disasters, and enhance democracy.
