The World Population Day is observed every year on July 11.

The primary goal of observing such a day is to raise awareness about the world’s growing population and the issues and problems that arise as a result of such overpopulation.

Dr. Zacharia first proposed the event in his capacity as a World Bank demographer. During his presidency, the world’s population surpassed five billion mark.

The governing council of UNDP (United Nations Development Program) decided in 1989 to designate July 11 as World Population Day.

The theme of World Population Day 2022 is “A World of 8 Billion: Towards a Resilient Future for All – Harnessing Opportunities and Ensuring Rights and Choices for All”.

Overpopulation is causing the world’s natural resources to deplete rapidly.

Countries also use World Population Day to raise awareness and educate people about family planning, poverty, and human rights.

Every country observes the day in its own unique way. Students participate, posters are created, events are held, and hopefully, the message is spread.

Over the last 150 years, our planet has seen such a population explosion that it has rapidly become our biggest crises.
