Did you know?

Australia’s population

Our nation adds one person every 1 minute and 22 seconds, needing equivalent of a new city the size of Canberra each year.

Ecological limits

Humanity is now using the biocapacity of 1½ planets each year. By 2025 two-thirds of the world’s people may be under water stress.

Family planning and women’s empowerment

Over 40% of pregnancies are unintended. Early marriage, low education and no contraception trap women and families in a poverty cycle.

Global population

Over 80 million people are added each year – equivalent to an extra Egypt. Since 2000 the growth has rebounded due to neglect of family planning.
