7 Billion People, One Planet

CONTEXT

Jul 07, 2014

There was a time when predictions of “overpopulation” and books like The Population Bomb dominated discussions of environmental concerns. But in an era of climate change, how we think and talk about population and where it sits on the list of environmental concerns is changing.

On the eve of World Population Day 2014, Roger-Mark De Souza, director of population, environmental security, and resilience for the Wilson Center discusses the latest thinking on population issues.
