Africa's population predictions

Damon Recagno's curator insight, October 14, 2017 11:00 AM

This site relates the topic because it takes a look at Africa's approach for tackling a declining natural growth which is slightly different then most of the developed locations discussed on this page. While the rest of the world is producing babies at levels far below replacement rate and relying heavily on immigration to help populate their cities, Africa on the other hand is producing babies far above said rate at an  average of 5.2 babies per women. Natural growth rate however is more then just births, as learnt in class it is births-deaths. Thanks to rapid advancements in regards to Africa's medical sector, less children are dying prematurely, during birth and in the early stages of their lives. As a result of said medical advancements which is allowing more children to survive and the fact that women are still producing an average of 5.2 babies Africa's population is said to reach 2.4billion by 2050.

Interactive "Islands of Mankind" by Derek Watkins

Interactive "Islands of Mankind" by Derek Watkins | World Population issues | Scoop.it

Interactive global population density map, ranging from 5 to 500 people per square kilometer. According to its creator, Derek Watkins, "it’s an unabashedly generalized interactive population density map inspired/stolen from a map by William Bunge entitled “Islands of Mankind” that I came across on John Krygier‘s blog. I thought Bunge’s map was a novel way to look at population density, and I’ve tried to stay close to the spirit of the original."

Population 7 Billion

Population 7 Billion | World Population issues | Scoop.it

"Just 200 years ago, there were only 1 billion people on the planet, and over the next 150 years, that number grew to 3 billion. But in the past 50 years, the global population has more than doubled, and the UN projects that it could possibly grow to 15 billion by the year 2100. As the international organization points out, this increasing rate of change brings with it enormous challenges."

At first, the world's population did not grow a lot. Now we are growing about 1 billion in 12 years, that is scary compared to the 200 years we grew about 1 billion. These are some pictures of some highly dense populations. It is even scarier that in 2100 the population is suspected to be 15 billion.

jada_chace's curator insight, September 10, 2014 9:25 AM

Over the years our world population has grown enormously. Almost  200 years ago there was only 1 billion people in the world, and as time went on the population started to increase dramatically. By 2100, geographers say the population will grow to be 150 million people in the world. The population continues to grow throughout time, we therefore should be cautious on how we are to our environment.

Gene Gagne's curator insight, November 22, 2015 12:49 PM

I saw the pictures. It is amazing how peoples back yards are all different. From water to dirt to garbage to no back yards at all. I was commenting on the fact with the population growth there is only one way to build and that is up. Then i saw the pictures of the High risers and how tall they were and so close together. It is a no wonder people live in a stressful environment. There is nothing like living in a wide open land lot with grass in Wyoming or Montana but that sure will change in the next 50 years.

A New Way to Illuminate Inequality Around the World

A New Way to Illuminate Inequality Around the World | World Population issues | Scoop.it

Want to know where the poor live? Look at where the light isn’t.

 

"Satellite photos of Earth’s artificial lights at night form a luminescent landscape. But researcher Chris Elvidge of NOAA and colleagues from the University of Colorado and the University of Denver realized that they could also illuminate something much darker: the magnitude of human poverty. By comparing the amount of light in a particular area and its known population, they realized that they could infer the percentage of people who are able to afford electricity and the level of government spending on infrastructure development. This allowed them to extrapolate levels of human development—a measure of well-being that includes such factors as income, life expectancy and literacy."
