POPULATION & DEVELOPMENT: THE STATE OF WORLD POPULATION REPORT 2011
Seven billion people will inhabit the earth on 31 October 2011.
People and Possibilities in a World of 7 Billion
This year's State of World Population Report, People and Possibilities in a World of 7 Billion, looks at the dynamics behind numbers. It explains the trends that are defining our world of 7 billion and documents actions that people in vastly different countries and circumstances are taking in their own communities to make the most of their - and our - world.
The report makes the case for sound planning and investing in people.
