The Population Day: Are There Really Grounds for Optimism?


There are limited resources and limited land but then there is population that is growing beyond limits._ World celebrated, The Population Day on July,11. The concept of World Population Day was started in 1989 by the United Nations, after a proposal by Dr. KC Zachariah, on the eve of the worldwide population crossing five billion on July 11, 1987. More than 90 nations first observed World Population Day on July 11, 1990. The United Nations has chosen World Population Day 2023’s theme as “Unleashing the power of gender Equality: Uplifting the voices of women and girls to unlock our world’s infinite possibilities.” Ever since, in coordination with governments and civil societies, various UNFPA country offices and different associations and institutions have been honouring this day.encourages individuals and organisations to take positive action by increasing awareness and understanding of the global population. It also provides a unique opportunity for advocacy of causes like gender equality, women’s empowerment and their role in the shaping of a better world. The Day aims to bring into focus the major problems connected with the worldwide population. It sheds light on how that exponential rise in population worsens poverty, economic crises, and the difficulties faced by women.  *There can’t be more people on the Earth than we can feed.* “Clearly, other things being equal, fewer people will do less damage to the planet.” Population growth puts increased pressure on everything else. *South Asia & Increasing Population* From the viewpoint of economics, the high population growth in South Asia has slowed down economic growth, increased the foreign trade imblance, and worsened poverty. The rapid population growth has overburdened the area’s educational system. The regional governments have found it more and more difficult to meet the needs of their people. Widespread poverty and illiteracy, the inability to read or write, have left millions without hope that their lives would improve.Growth is projected to average 5.8 percent in 2022. A downward revision of 1 percentage point from the forecast made in June. This follows growth of 7.8 percent in 2021, when most countries were rebounding from the pandemic slump. Inflation in South Asia is set to fall to 8.9 percent this year, and to below 7 percent in 2024. Weaker currencies and delayed domestic price adjustments are contributing to a slower than anticipated decline in inflation.
