How Population Change Will Transform Our World

How Population Change Will Transform Our World
Harper, Sarah. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2016.

This book examines population trends by region to highlight the key issues facing us in the coming decades, including the demographic inertia in Europe, demographic dividend in Asia, high fertility and mortality in Africa, the youth bulge in the Middle East, and the balancing act of migration in the Americas. The author analyzes future global challenges like the impact of urbanization and climate change and considers ways we can mitigate their impact. Harper works to dispel myths like climate change causing a mass environmental refugee crisis and instead considers the impact of demographic trends in fertility, mortality, and migration.
