The world’s population of nearly one billion in 1800 has grown to approximately 6.9 billion today, and population projections suggest that the world population will fall somewhere between 8 and 10.5 billion by 2050, depending on changes in national level fertility and mortality rates (UNPD 2010). Nearly all of the world’s net population growth over the coming 40 years will occur in cities in less developed countries.
