World Population Day 2022: History, significance, theme, quotes and more…

“One step to control the population can save this world from a dark future.”


World Population Day is observed every year on 11 July worldwide. It focuses on the importance of population and issues raised from it. July 11, 1987 is the date on which the world’s population reached an estimated rate of five billion people. Hence, from then, 11 July is considered as an annual date for world population day.

 World population day was established by the Council of UNDP in 1989 by seeing the interest of the public in the celebration of five billion. And finally, in 1990, UNDP made this official.

Brief Synthesis

 By 2011, the world has reached a population of 7 billion. And most probably in 2023, the world will hit a massive 8 billion population. Look how much popularity has increased since then!

The issue of a rising population is also causing damage to society. Crimes are happening in the field of gender inequality and human rights, especially in developing countries. The increase in population also throws light on health problems women face nowadays in pregnancy and family planning. 

Not just health problems but other climatic conditions are affected by the massive growth of the population. If we look into the matter of COVID-19, the vaccines were unevenly distributed among people because the rate of people was really so high.

 According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, “Even though the pace of global population growth will continue to decline in the coming decades, the world population is likely to be between 20 and 30 per cent larger in 2050 than in 2020. Having accurate estimates of population trends and reliable forecasts of future changes, including for the size of populations and their distributions by age, sex and geographical location, is required for policy formulation and implementation and as a guide to assist countries in following a path towards sustainable development.”
