Dear Family Planning Champion,
Since 1950 (just 70 years ago) the world’s population has nearly tripled from 2.5 billion to more than 7.8 billion. Will this rapid increase will continue or slow? Studies on population projections have tried to answer that question. No matter what the projections, they have implications for policies, programs, and spending on resources. It’s important to critically analyze projections and their underlying assumptions– the subject of a webinar for our pick this week.
