Pakistan population grows to over. 180,000,000

Pakistan’s population has grown to over 180 Million.

To put that into perspective, the Pakistan 1998 census put the population at 132 million , that’s a staggering 28 million in just 13 years. We were glad to be sitting down when that census came out.

Somehow we feel that this can’t be sustained . But what is Pakistan doing about it ?

Well it’s hard to say, according to the Express Tribune , there are families who want to have less children. However access to family planning is limited. The EU is urging the authorities to take a look at this issue as a priority. Read the Tribunes article below

Tribune , Pakistan must invest more to slow population growth

What do YOU think?

Prince Charles . A man ahead of his time.

” The future of mankind can be assured only if we rediscover ways in which to live as a part of nature, not apart from her. …. The grim reality is that our planet has reached a point of crisis and we have only seven years before we lose the levers of control.”

Prince Charles. Copenhagen Summit. 2009.
