On Tuesday, November 15, the UN announced the development and issued a “grave risk for the future” warning. A world population of 8 million people, according to John Wilmoth, director of the UN’s population division, is both “a tremendous risk for our future” and a “symbol of human progress.”
Marca claims that Damian, the planet Earth’s eighth billionth child, was born in the Dominican Republic.
In a statement about the birth of the 8 billion people, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said, in part. “The milestone provides an occasion to celebrate variety and accomplishments while considering humanity’s shared responsibility for the planet.”
Billions of individuals are in need; hundreds of millions are going hungry or possibly facing famine,” Guterres stated. Record numbers of people are moving in search of jobs, financial stability, and protection from poverty, war, and natural disasters. We are preparing for an 8-billion-strong world full of tensions and mistrust, crises, and conflict unless we bridge the gap between the world’s haves and have-nots.
The facts speak for themselves, Guterres continued. As much wealth is controlled by a small group of billionaires as it is by the world’s poorest half. People in the richest nations may expect to live up to 30 years longer than those in the poorest, while the top one percent of earners worldwide take one-fifth of global revenue.
As emissions and temperatures rise, we are speeding toward a climatic disaster. Disasters like floods, hurricanes, and droughts are wreaking havoc in nations that barely made a dent in global warming.
According to the most recent projections from the UN, the world’s population might reach 8.5 billion by 2030 and a staggering 9.7 billion by 2050.
8 BILLION POPULATION
The UN estimates that by the 2080s, there would be a population peak of 10.4 billion people, which will last until 2100.
The organization also forecast that, by 2020, the population of the DRC, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Nigeria, and Pakistan. the Philippines and the United Republic of Tanzania will outpace China as the world’s most populated nation.
The UN Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs, Liu Zhenmin, stated that the relationship between population increase. And sustainable development is complicated and multifaceted before Damian’s birth.
Rapid population increase makes it more challenging to eradicate poverty, and end hunger, and malnutrition. and expand access to health and education systems, continued Liu.

According to a United Nations forecast, the world’s population will likely reach 8 billion on Tuesday. With much of the expansion coming from developing African countries.
Nigerian and Africans
Nigeria is one of them, whose resources are already at their maximum capacity. In Lagos, which has a population of more than 15 million. HOWEVER, residents struggle for everything from space on crowded buses to energy to light their houses, frequently traveling two hours each way.
Day of the 8 Billion milestones for the U.N. Officials is cautious to point out in a comprehensive report published over. The summer makes some astounding estimates that Tuesday is more symbolic than precise.
As governments struggle to accommodate enough schools and employment opportunities for a fast-expanding number of youth. And food poverty becomes an increasingly pressing issue. The upward trend threatens to push even more people in developing countries further behind.
Nevertheless, we see panic and provocative headlines warning that the number is too high—too much for a planet already reeling from widespread inequality, humanitarian crises, and climate change—at every milestone of population expansion. This unease would seem especially relevant in a world that is becoming more unequal and is constantly being roiled by emergencies. However, the sheer quantity of people is not a reason for concern.
Regardless of the trends, there are two major risks associated with focusing only on population statistics.
First, concentrating just on numbers dehumanizes people by treating them like commodities and robbing them of their rights. Leaders have all too frequently established goals for population growth or fertility rates, resulting in egregious violations of human rights. For the avoidance of doubt, when we discuss the “issue” with fertility rates or the “optimal” population number. We truly mean to govern people’s bodies.
