PIP: Rapid population growth is one of the major contributing factors to the poverty and under-development of Third World countries--especially African countries, which boast the highest population growth rates in the world. Several factors are responsible for the rapid growth: a drop in mortality rates, a young population, improved standards of living, and attitudes and practices which favor high fertility. Africans view large families as an economic asset and as a symbol of worth and honor, and parents see it as security during old age. The ideal family size in Africa is 5 to 7 children. Because of its complex causes, curbing the rapid growth is not easy. In addition to strategic difficulties, population policies usually meet opposition, often from religious groups. So in order to gain acceptance, population programs need to be integrated with ongoing community development programs.
In recent years an increasing number of African people are being added every year This was not always the cas these population increases are unprecedented in history. If development entails the improvement in people's level of living - their incomes, health, education and general well-being - and if it also encompasses their self esteem, respect dignity and freedom of choice then the really impotant question about population growth is how does the contemporary population situation in many African countries contribute to or detract from their chances of realizing the goals of development, not only for the current generation but also for the future generations? Conversely, how does development affect population growth? To extent does rapid population increase make it more difficult to provide essential social services including housing, transport, sanitation, and security? Will employment opportunities be plentiful or will it be a major achievement just to keep unemployment levels from rising? Will world food supply and its distributon be sufficient not only to meet the anticipated population increasein the coming decades but also to improve nutritional levels to the point where all humans can have an adequate diet? Is there a relationship between poverty and family size?

This number was growing annually at a rate of about 2. For every 1, persons, there were Under estimated rates of childbearing in , each woman in developing countries would bear an average of 4. These numbers represent a substantial change in demographic conditions during Me postwar period.
Africa Toward pp Cite as. The population issue is an overriding factor in addressing these questions. After placing discussions on population and development policies in the African context, the relationships between demographic growth and development in Africa are analysed by examining the specific case of North Africa and the impact of human capital improvement upon demographic changes. This treatment of the current state of the population-development relationship in Africa enables us to present the different domains where uncertainties prevail and draw up possible medium-term trajectories concerning demographic change and development. The conclusion emphasises the regional dimensions of demo-economic relationships. Unable to display preview. Download preview PDF.
Africa is closely watched as the next big growth market — a description that has persisted for a while. In a study of six key countries drawn from different sub-regions, the authors examined three primary categories of levers that could translate digital technology uptake into development and inclusive growth: jobs enabled by digital platforms; institutional drivers necessary for digital success; and the foundational digital potential of the country. There are many reasons for optimism: the African continent is home to some of the youngest populations in the world, it promises to be a major consumption market over the next three decades, and it is increasingly mobile phone-enabled.

- Если бы Танкадо подозревал некий подвох, он инстинктивно стал бы искать глазами убийцу. Как вы можете убедиться, этого не произошло. На экране Танкадо рухнул на колени, по-прежнему прижимая руку к груди и так ни разу и не подняв глаз. Он был совсем один и умирал естественной смертью. - Странно, - удивленно заметил Смит. - Обычно травматическая капсула не убивает так .
