India will overtake China’s population by 2022 : UN

According to a UN study India will overtake China and become the world’s most populous nation by 2022., six years earlier than previously predicted.

The report also says half the world’s population growth between now and 2015 will be concentrated in India, Nigeria, Pakistan, DRC, Ethiopia, Tanzania, US, Indonesia and Uganda.
Africa is expected to account for over half the world’s population growth over the next 35 years, as the current world population of 7.3 billion reaches 9.7 billion in 2050.

The Director of the UN’s Population Division said the growth is making it more difficult to eradicate poverty and inequality and to combat hunger and malnutrition.
