Based on demographic projections, the world population has topped 7 Billion people, which is both an achievement and a challenge, impacting every single
person on the planet. A world of seven billion has implications for sustainability, urbanization, access to health services and youth empowerment – however, it also offers a rare call-to-action opportunity to renew global commitment for a healthy and sustainable world.
To mark this milestone, UNFPA is leading an innovative global campaign – 7 Billion Actions with two key objectives:
- Building global awareness around the opportunities and challenges associated with a world of seven billion people.
- Inspiring governments, NGOs, private sector, media, academia and individuals to take actions that will have a socially positive impact.
