The world is experiencing a dramatic increase in population, This is causing problems not only for poor, undeveloped countries, but also for industrialised and developing nations.
Describe some of the problems that overpopulation causes, and suggest at least one possible solution.
All over the world the population is increasing dramatically. This is especially true in the third world countries, but also in the developing countries. Unfortunately overpopulation causes big problems in our society.
In poor countries , where people donīt have job, they donīt regist how hard to raise a child. they have another problems which are more important. First, lack of the food and water cause starvation. They canīt produce fruits or vegetables, because the climate is unsuitable. For example in Africa there are only a few rivers, but these dirty and include many bacteries, too. Second, the healthcare system in poor countries almost equal with nothing. in this case, people donīt hear about preventing a baby.
In the developed countries, is also very difficult to sop the increasing of the humankind. Many big cities are overcrowded, the rates of the unemployment is high. Moreover, thousands of people migrate to richer countries for a better life.
Find a solution for this problem is very hard. In China, government helps financially families which have only one child. Although, it is a good idea, telling to people how many children have is not ethical. One reason could be to help poor countries, inform humanity about preventing baby. Another drastical solution if the law allow women to have an abortion when they donīt want to give a birth.
To sum up, increasing commonalty is a big problem. Governments have to find a solution , because forecasts say that in 2050 the population reach 10 billion.
