Observed on 11 July annually, World Population Day was established by the governing council of the United Nations Development Programme in 1989 to focus on the urgency and importance of population issues.
The second most populous country in the world, India with 1.37 billion people is raising alarm globally. India is anticipated to beat China as the World’s most populous country around 2027. This statement was released in World Population Prospects 2019, by the Population Division of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
How the government is working towards population control?
Several measures have been introduced by our government like assured home delivery of contraceptives by Accredited Social Health Activist. They have been instructed to distribute kits containing family planning. To uplift billions of people both in the present and in the future, the government and its citizens must change the way they use the limited resources and implement schemes/initiatives to contain population explosion.
Relying on our government is a good thing, after all, we choose our representatives to look after and solve our matters. But being a part of a community where you have been allotted with limited resources it’s your duty to aware others.
