The Guardian recently published an essay by Joe Bish, Director of Issue Advocacy at Population Media Center (PMC), entitled “Population growth in Africa: grasping the scale of the challenge.” Here’s the intro:
“The last 100 years have seen an incredible increase in the planet’s population. Some parts of the world are now seeing smaller increments of growth, and some, such as Japan, Germany, and Spain, are actually experiencing population decreases.
“The continent of Africa, however, is not following this pattern. Now home to 1.2 billion (up from just 477 million in 1980), Africa is projected by the United Nations Population Division to see a slight acceleration of annual population growth in the immediate future.”
I’m proud to have been providing publicity and media relations services for PMC over the past four years and am especially thrilled with Joe’s piece.
The essay also included a link to our wildly popular photo essay that ran in The Guardian last year on our book Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot, as part of our international book publicity campaign. Since April 2015, this webpage has been viewed over 3 million times and has been shared over 700,000 times on social media.
