 World Population Expected To Cross 10 Billion In 2100

A new report by United Nations (UN) has predicted that the world population is expected to reach 10.1 billion in 2100.

According to the report, titled "2010 Revision of World Population Prospects", the figure of the expected increase in global population is projected to come from 58 "high-fertility countries" in Asia, Africa, Oceania, and Latin America.

The UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) prepared the report.

"The world hasn't collapsed by adding so many people, but what is important is that most of these people are being added in the poorest countries of the world," The Star quoted DESA's Population Division Director Hania Zlotnik, as saying.

The report further said that the number of people in the world, which is currently close to seven billion, should pass eight billion in 2023, nine billion by 2041 and then 10 billion at some point after 2081.

Between 2011 and 2100, the population of high-fertility countries is expected to more than triple in size, going from 1.2 billion to 4.2 billion, the report noted.

During the same period, the report projected, the population of low-fertility countries will decline by around 20 percent from 2.9 billion to 2.4 billion.
