Population & Environment
A GLOBAL ISSUE
My question:
How does population change impact the environment?
Ways to prevent overpopulation
Old Core vs. Far Periphery
negative impacts on the environment
facts of Overpopulation
Old Core
Canada
Far Periphery
Bangladesh
Overpopulation
Overpopulation:
an undesirable condition where the number of existing human
population exceeds the carrying capacity
of Earth.
Current global population:
7.5 billion
Growth:
1.5 million people per week
Carrying Capacity:
the population that can be supported indefinitely by its supporting systems.
UN population prediction for 2050:
9.7 billion
Paul Gilding: The Earth is full
"Have we used up all our resources? Have we filled up all the livable space on Earth? Paul Gilding suggests we have, and the possibility of devastating consequences, in a talk that's equal parts terrifying and, oddly, hopeful."

These graphs show how the population will keep increasing in size in an Old Core country
These graphs show how the population will keep increasing in size in a Far Periphery country
- Population growth is not evenly distributed across the globe
- Scientists are yet to conclusively determine the human ‘carrying capacity’ of Earth
- Population is only one of many factors influencing the environmentWe have consumed more resources in the last 50 years than the whole of humanity before us
- The 20th century saw the biggest increase in the world’s population in human history
- The world wastes more than $750 billion worth of food every year
BETTER EDUCATION
MAKE PEOPLE AWARE OF FAMILY PLANNING
KNOWLEDGE OF SEX EDUCATION
Educating the masses helps them understand the need to have one or two children at the most. Family planning and efficient birth control can help in women making their own reproductive choices. Open dialogue on abortion and voluntary sterilization should be seen when talking about overpopulation.
LOSS OF FRESH WATER
SPECIES EXTINCTION
DEPLETION OF NATURAL RESOURCES
INCREASED HABITAT LOSS
MORE INTENSIVE FARMING PRACTICES
INCREASED GLOBAL WARMING
According to the Global Outlook for Water Resources to the Year 2025, it is estimated that by 2025, more than half of the world population will be facing water-based vulnerability and human demand for water will account for 70% of all available freshwater.

As the human population continues to explode, finite natural resources, such as fossil fuels, fresh water, arable land, coral reefs and frontier forests, continue to plummet, which is placing competitive stress on the basic life sustaining resources and leading to a diminished quality of life.
Life in Bangladesh
The current population of Bangladesh is
164,827,718
and it's population density is
1266
(P/Km²)
Everyday Life
Environment
- Extended families usually live together
- The children are expected to look after their elders
- Grandparents are responsible for children when their parents are away
- Bangladesh society is male dominated, and they're very protective of their female relatives
- Women are discouraged from being outside after sunset and usually have a low status in society except for the upper class
- In cities, most people live in apartment buildings
- In urban slum areas, houses are made of bamboo structures with a roof of bamboo or tin
- In villages or rural areas people live in small clusters of bamboo or mud huts
Bangladesh is facing immediate climate change issues and must become resilient to frequent natural disasters, degradation of forest areas and wetlands, and meet the country’s energy demand without endangering the environment.
Grouping Countries
Canada
(Old Core)
Bangladesh
(Far Periphery)
Old Core:
Countries that have been highly globalized for many years (Western Europe/Canada/United States/Japan/Australia/New Zealand)
Far Periphery:
Countries of the Periphery that are least globalized and farthest from joining the Core
The way we group countries now is by considering which country is an active participant in a globalized world. It can be broken down into economic development, social development, and political maturity.

Bangladesh is a
multiparty parliamentary representative democracy
, but in 2014 there was a boycott against the elections made by major opposition parties. The government was accused of trying to turn the country into a dominant party state under the ruling of Awami League. Bangladesh also finds itself being recognized for having corruption in it's country. This is because of reasons often including low salaries and weak institutional capacities.
Facts about Canada's Quality of Life
the top 20% of the population earn about five times as much as the bottom 20%
over 72% of people aged 15 to 64 in Canada have a paid job
90% of adults aged 25-64 have completed upper secondary education
The average student scored 522 in reading literacy, maths and science in the OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA)
life expectancy at birth in Canada is 82 years
The level of atmospheric PM2.5 is 12.1 micrograms per cubic meter
90% of people say they are satisfied with the quality of their water
94% of people believe that they know someone they could rely on in time of need
When Canadians were asked to rate their general satisfaction with life on a scale from 0 to 10, Canadians gave it a 7.4 grade, higher than the OECD average of 6.5
Facts about Bangladesh's Quality of Life
Bangladesh has been unable to eliminate extreme poverty and hunger
In the major cities a significant proportion of Bangladeshis live in squalor in dwellings that fall apart during the monsoon season and have no regular electricity
Bang-ladeshis have limited access to health care and to clean drinking water
The rural population, meanwhile, often lives in traditional houses in villages with no facilities associated with even the most modest standards of living
Adult literacy rate reached just 60 percent in 2000
