Media Release - World Population Day

To mark World Population Day on 11 July, seven organizations from three continents are calling on national governments and international institutions to take urgent action in response to the 1992 and 2017 Warnings to Humanity.

These warnings were made by the world’s leading scientists. In 1992, 1,700 scientists urged humankind to curtail environmental destruction and improve its stewardship of the Earth. Last year, 20,000 scientists from 184 countries published a Second Notice, pointing to runaway consumption of limited resources by a still rapidly growing population.

Australia’s population

Our nation adds one person every 1 minute and 22 seconds, needing equivalent of a new city the size of Canberra each year.

Ecological limits

Humanity is now using the biocapacity of 1½ planets each year. By 2025 two-thirds of the world’s people may be under water stress.

Family planning and women’s empowerment

Over 40% of pregnancies are unintended. Early marriage, low education and no contraception trap women and families in a poverty cycle.

Global population

Over 80 million people are added each year – equivalent to an extra Egypt. Since 2000 the growth has rebounded due to neglect of family planning.
