Senegal: Baby Boom
This continuing, rapid expansion of the human footprint on what has increasingly come to seem a small planet, has serious implications for nearly all aspects of life. Issues relating to health and ageing, mass migrations and urbanization, demand for housing and inadequate food supplies, access to safe drinking water, and so much more.
Rapidly increasing population exacerbates existing problems, such as transnational crime, economic interdependency, climate change, the spread of diseases such as HIV/AIDS and various other pandemics, and such social issues as gender equality, reproductive health, safe motherhood, human rights,, emergency situations, and so much more.
