Population Communication Home

When Population Communication was founded in 1977, the world's population was close to four billion.  This year we will have seven billion and headed to ten billion.  Any country that does not have a plan of action to achieve population stabilization by lowering the birthrate will stabilize population growth by an increase in the death rate.  The planet is headed towards a zero-fossil-fuel future and an increasingly more precarious environment.  With depleting water resources, deforestation, biodiversity loss, and increased carbon emissions, almost every environmental indicator is moving in the wrong direction.  Population Communication is actively working on prescribing the actions to achieve replacement-size families by improving the status of women, guaranteeing quality family planning services, and reinforcing a human rights approach to reproductive health and family planning.
