7 Billion and You Lecture Series: Demography of the 7 Billion

Thursday, January 24, 2013 - 19:00

Where is the world population heading? What happens when we get there?

The world’s population is expected to peak at 9 to 10 billion and then slowly decline. There are multiple questions associated with this march toward population stability: How do we know it will happen? What is its timing and regional variation? How much older will the world’s population get? What are the implications of this stability for world environmental change?
