World Population Year: 6,000,000 more every month
This double issue of the Unesco Courier is a follow-up of our May 1974 number and is devoted to the impact of population growth on food, the environment, and social and economic development.
Between 19 and 30 August, 1974, the World Population Conference organized by the United Nations will be held in Bucharest (Romania). Leading authorities on demographic problems have prepared various studies for this conference, which was preceded by a series of U.N. symposiums held in Cairo, Honolulu, Stockholm and Amsterdam. Several articles in this issue are based on studies prepared for these meetings.
The editors have also been inspired in the preparation of this number by the considerations on population set forth in a special Unesco study on 12 major world problems of today, to be submitted to Unesco's General Conference next October.
