World Population Day celebrated every year on July 11 to raise awareness about the exploding world population.
It was established by the then-Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme in 1989, an outgrowth of the interest generated by the Day of Five Billion, which was observed on 11 July 1987.
In 1994, International Conference on Population and Development was held at Cairo where a Programme of Action was adopted by 179 governments and called for women's reproductive health and rights to take centre stage in global and national development efforts.

Current estimates indicate that roughly 83 million people are being added to the world’s population every year.
Even assuming that fertility levels will continue to decline, the global population is expected to reach 8.6 billion in 2030, 9.8 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100, according to the medium-variant projection.
