The United Nations anticipates that the World’s population will exceed 9 billion people by 2050. This calculation supposes that population growth will actually decelerate as average material wealth increases in Developing countries, with reduced fertility rates as a benign consequence. However, the evidence contradicts this. Today the Underdeveloped World knows little about reproductive education, empowerment of women, development goals, water and ecosystem management.
In summary, we cannot rely on a population stabilisation unless we proactively engage with the people of the Underdeveloped World to grow development, education and general improvement in quality of life. Terraintegra believes that through the provision of electricity, other quality of life technologies can be made available to educate and improve the Underdeveloped World. The consequences of inaction are continued population growth, poverty, disease, abuse of human rights and greater planetary stress.
