Population control measures in Pakistan have proved largely unsuccessful. This has come out from the United Nations report released on the occasion of World Population Day on July 11 this year. According to this report, in the next 28 years, the population of Pakistan will increase by 56 percent compared to today. Pakistan is one of the countries in the world where the rate of population growth is higher than the global rate.
In the report named ‘World Population Prospect 2022’, it was told that the world’s population is currently 7 billion 700 million, which will increase to 10 billion 400 million by 2080. According to earlier estimates, the world population was to reach ten billion in the year 2100. It is believed that due to the weakness in population control in countries like Pakistan, the pace of world population control has slowed down.
The report clearly states that among the countries which are contributing more in population growth, Pakistan is prominent. The population of Pakistan in 1990 was 11.40 million. Then it was at number eight in the list of the most populous countries in the world. Now he has reached number five. At present the population of Pakistan is more than 220 million. The increase in population is due to the expected decline in the birth rate in the country. Population growth is seen as a negative phenomenon due to non-falling birth rates. If a population increases due to a decrease in mortality, it is considered a sign of progress or development.
In May this year, a report was released during the conference of NGO- Pakistan Endocrine Society (PES). It was told that 4 million married couples in Pakistan are childless. This has happened due to physical weakness of one of the husband and wife. In that conference, experts said that the birth rate has decreased in a section of the population due to changes in lifestyle. Earlier in 2014, a World Bank report said that Pakistani men are now taking interest in family planning due to the increasing challenges of raising a family. But the latest report indicates that all these trends are limited to a small section of the population.
Experts have pointed out that a 56 per cent increase in population by 2050 would mean that the country’s population would have crossed 350 million by then. Then the challenge before Pakistan will be to provide food, health care, education and other public services to such a large population.
Today the country is suffering from economic and social plight. According to a report, between 2010 and 2021, one crore 65 lakh Pakistanis went to work abroad. This happened because of the lack of employment opportunities in the country. That is why after the latest report, the concern is being raised that when Pakistan is not able to provide minimum living facilities to its population now, then it will be able to do so in 2050?
