Many environmental trends are grim, there exist clear paths forward toward a more sustainable world: one where people steward resources for the future and share habitat and resources generously with other species.
Increasing human population over time is the increase in the number of humans on Earth. For most of human history our population size was relatively stable. But with innovation and industrialization, energy, food, water, and medical care became more available and reliable.
Consequently, global human population rapidly increased, and continues to do so, with dramatic impacts on global climate and ecosystems. We will need technological and social innovation to help us support the world’s population as we adapt to and mitigate climate and environmental changes.
Following are the actions to take to curb overpopulation:
Actions at Individual level
You should have fewer children. One is fine, two is sufficient.
Actions at the national level
Governments should consider high-fibre developing countries.
Family planning programs can be generously funded
Modern contraception should be legalized and made free of charge in all areas, even remote ones.
To reduce infant and child deaths, improve health care
Less crowding, lower demand on natural resources, cleaner air, the return of degraded ecosystems and reduced carbon emissions are just some of the benefits that could be realised over the coming decades by successfully reducing the global human population.
