The world’s population is set to reach 8 billion people this year. As we hit this milestone, many questions about the knock-on effects linger:
- Do we have enough food and energy resources for growing populations?
- What transport and living infrastructure is needed in growing regions, and how will further urbanization affect our planet?
- When could global population growth stop, and what effects would this change in trend have?
These questions only scratch the surface of the changing world at 8 billion people and the effects of these changes.
Introducing The World at 8 Billion report, exclusive to VC+ members.
Our report explores the implications and trends of this milestone in population growth. Using impactful and digestible visuals, we cut through the noise to bring you the insights that matter—all underpinned with the latest, verifiable data.
