This paper looks at population control around the world and determines that the developing world has much to do to protect itself from problems related to this problem. The paper explains the demographic transition and looks at India's rapid population growth, Ethiopia as a classic example of a worst-case scenario in the developing world with regard to population control and China's statistically significant program of population control. The paper shows how population growth is largely a problem restricted to the developing world, but points out that its consequences will, ultimately, have global implications. The paper argues that it is essential that action to control the rate of population increase be undertaken on a global basis immediately.

The Demographic Transition
Population and the Development Crisis in India
Ethiopia: Demographics and Civil War
China: Successful Population Control?

From the Paper:

"Population growth is a deep ecological issue of strategic implications and global proportions. At present population growth is largely stable in the developed world (or growing due to immigration as is the case with the United States). However, in the developing world population growth is largely unrestrained (although China provides a decided contrast). For example, the population of Ethiopia is expected to rise by 125% by 2025. (World Resources, 1995-96, 1995, p 238)
"One might be tempted to define the problem geographically or regionally as a problem of the developing world. This is true in the sense that population control efforts must be directed largely toward the developing world. On the other hand population growth and the ensuing problems of water distribution, agricultural production, and environmental overloading have global consequences. While the problem may be isolated in the developing world the consequences cannot. Therefore the issue of population growth highlights both differences and links between the developed and developing world."
