World Population Day

It took hundreds of thousands of years for the world population to grow to 1 billion, then in just another 200 years or so, it grew sevenfold. In 2011, the global population reached the 7 billion mark. This year, the number will hit 8 billion and it's expected to grow to around 8,5 billion in 2030, 9,7 billion in 2050, and 10,9 billion in 2100.

Key facts and figures:

  • The world’s population more than tripled in size between 1950 and 2020.

  • From 2000 to 2020, while the global population grew at an average annual rate of 1,2%, 48 countries or areas in Africa and Asia grew at least twice as fast.

  • The life span of adults in the developed world has increased since the middle of the 20th century.

  • Worldwide, the number of deaths relative to the size of the population has been declining since the 1950s.

Providing food for the constantly increasing global population in a sustainable way is not an easy task. In conjunction with the fresh water scarcity, especially in areas of rapidly growing population, turns the need for better irrigation practices, a necessity.

Drip irrigation is by far the most sustainable irrigation method which enables farmers worldwide to increase crop production while at the same time reduce the water, chemicals and nutrients consumption.
