  • How long will the current era of population growth continue?
  • What are the implications of a youthful global population for social and economic development?
  • How can the global population grow while ensuring the sustainability of life on our planet for future generations?

As the world works toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) will host a discussion with experts on global population growth and its social, economic and environmental impacts. Speakers will examine the latest findings from UN DESA’s new report, Global Population Growth and Sustainable Development, which will be launched at the event.
