African Population Crisis
In the latest population report, the UN projects that the world's total population will be 10.1 billion by 2100. An increase of 3.2 billion in ninety years.
This growth in population will not be evenly spread amongst the countries of the world. Most of the new people in the world will live in Sub-Saharan Africa. Every other country in the world will only add 1.3 billion by mid-century and then slowly decline.
Sub-Saharan Africa alone will account for an increase of 2.5 billion, bringing that region's total to 3.6 billion. All those extra people will continue to put strain on a whole continent already plagued with war, poverty, disease, and famine.
