World Population July 11, 2021: Know its relevance and significance

Today, July 11, 2021, marks the World Population Day. Every year on this day the nation highlights the problems of overpopulation and raises awareness about the effects of overpopulation on the environment and development. The day raises awareness about the global population status amongst people. This event was established in the year 1989 by the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme.

The first World Population Day was marked on July 11, 1989, and today, in 2021, the world will mark its 32 nd Population Day. World Population Day was established by the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme in 1989. It was inspired by the public interest in Five Billion Day, the approximate date on which the world's population reached five billion people on July 11, 1987. The theme this year for World Population Day- “Rights and choices are the answer“:

Let us go through the three Major quotes on World Population day from eminent penalties:

1. Pope Benedict :  Every state has the primary duty to protect its own population from grave and sustained violations of human rights, as well as from the consequences of humanitarian crises, whether natural or man-made”.

2. A P J Abdul Kalam: "Almost half of the population of the world lives in rural regions and mostly in a state of poverty. Such inequalities in human development have been one of the primary reasons for unrest and, in some parts of the world, even violence"

3. Norman Borlaug: Yet food is something that is taken for granted by most world leaders despite the fact that more than half of the population of the world is hungry”. 

On the occasion of World Population Day, let us make a promise to ourselves to be more responsible towards the increasing population.
