The Global Population in 2100

The Global Population in 2100 | Global health | Scoop.it
Solving many of the world’s biggest environmental challenges may have just gotten more difficult.

The Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the UN recently released population data indicating the midline estimate - more than 10.8 billion by 2100 - is 800 million higher than the 2010 prediction.

Today’s rural-to-urban migration will continue in full force, with upwards of 84% of the planet living in cities at the close of the century (compared to 52 % today).

Of course population isn’t the only factor contributing to humans’ planetary impact. Consumption may be equally important when looking at the drivers of environmental change across the Earth. Nevertheless, population will continue to be a major consideration as we work to address issues ranging from energy and food security to water availability, species loss, pollution, urban planning and more in the decades ahead...

Aleasha Reed's curator insight, September 27, 2013 9:14 AM

By the year 2100 our global population is calculated to reach 10.8 billion. The United States is expected to grow another 150 million by this time. Our population right now is 313.9 million right now. Our big cities will continue to grow, and new ones will arise as the years pass.

Higher NHS spending in deprived areas can reduce health inequalities - University of Liverpool News | Global health | Scoop.it
A study by public health experts from the University of Liverpool has found that higher NHS spending in deprived areas reduces health inequalities from causes amenable to healthcare in England.
Ellie Hothersall's insight:
Glad to hear someone's working to prove this. We already know it to be true, but in these days of "evidence based interventions", common sense can fall foul.

Ellie Hothersall's insight:

I'm just collating some work on immigration and migrant health, and found this fairly balanced summary of the ethical standpoint about emergency care for immigrants. The reason I find this one useful above others is because it comes from the US, a country not noted for its consideration of ethics in healthcare very often.
