VODCAST - 09 May 2014 Wolfgang Lutz
Many people fear that the world's population will continue to grow as fast as it has for the past decades leading to food and water shortages, environmental degradation, and exacerbating poverty. 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.
