Discuss in groups of four.

The problems of overpopulation that directly affect our everyday life.

Answer :

The rapidly increasing population will not only affect the culture and start occupying more and more space but will also make the world a more and more poor and unhealthy place to reside in. There can be no doubt that the growth of world population is one of the strongest factors distorting the future of human society. The present world population is estimated at 5.7 billion. Every four days the world population increases by one million. Fertility falls as incomes rise, education spreads, and health improves. Thus development is the best contraceptive. But development itself may not be possible if the present increase in numbers continues. The population of India is estimated to be 920 million today — more than the entire populations of Africa and South America put together. No one familiar with the conditions in India would doubt that the hope of the people would die in their hungry hutments unless population control is given topmost priority
