    UNICEF: The Future is African

    A new UN report has said that four in 10 people on Earth will be African by 2100. This demographic change requires investment in health and education in order to avoid potentially staggering humanitarian crises.

    The population of Africa is set to soar, according to a study released by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). According to the report "Generation 2030/Africa," four in 10 people on earth will be African by 2100, with over 1 billion children living on the continent by mid-century.

    "More than half the projected 2.2-billion rise in world population in 2015-2050 is expected to take place in Africa," read the report, although the continent's population growth will level off eventually.



    One cause is the rising number of women of reproductive age, who have on average of 4.7 children – well above the global average of 2.5. Child marriages also contribute to girls having kids very young, rather than receiving an education.

    In Niger, the number of children per woman is a staggering 7.5.

    The report urges African nations to improve or provide the most rudimentary amenities as six in 10 Africans have no access to basic sanitation. On average, there are also only 1.7 medical professionals per 1,000 inhabitants - well below the minimum international standard of 4.45 set by the World Health Organization.

    The report warns that demographic change in Africa requires strong investment and attention so that "the children of today and tomorrow, have the potential to transform the continent,breaking centuries old cycles of poverty and inequity," otherwise the world risks creating dangerous political instability and myriad human rights disasters.

    "Generation 2030: Africa," noted that the world ought to pay particular attention to Nigeria, "the country with the largest increase in absolute numbers of both births and child population."

    Indeed, by 2015 one-fifth of Africa's births occurred in Nigeria alone, "accounting for 5 percent of all global births." The report stressed the importance of "expanded access to reproductive health services, girls' education and empowerment" in order to lift these children out of their precarious circumstances.

    "In absolute terms, Nigeria is projected to add from 2031 to 2050 an additional 224 million babies (21 percent of the births in Africa and 8 percent of all births in the world)."

    The major positive outcome of the study, according to the report, is that while many African children continue to live in poverty and conflict, child mortality is down and life expectancy has increased somewhat. However, there was still room for improvement, UNICEF noted, as Africa still accounts for half of all child deaths worldwide.

    Such a world will absolutely not be worth living in.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    The world is basically turning into a sh*thole. If we Germanic people want to have a prominent role in the future, we must have children. There are more and more childfree people among the native population, wasting their life away. Those who don't or can't have children should at least contribute in other ways, e.g. political activism.

    I don't think the problem will be that big in 2100. As stated african woman give birth to 4.7 children on average. The UN report also says the child death rate is very high. Half of all children born will die at birth or very young age, so the average african children numbers will be significant lower. Life expectancy is also still lower than in the West and probably will remain so.

    Besides those facts, many countries in africa live on development(money) from the Western countries. The average spending money in the West is getting lower and lower and even more of the money is flowing in to the pockets of the corrupt politicians. With the European Union as an uncontrollable monster. Also large sums of money are needed for all the immigrants coming to Europe.

    With that said africans need to be lead by Germanic people. They always depend on the West. History has showed it over and over again.

    Nope.

    The socalled "West" needs to stop meddling with their internal affairs, no development aid, no bread for the world, no doctors without borders, and certainly not "lead" them. They should be left alone.

    That population explosion is largely a result of all the socalled "support" from the West. They'd best be left to themselves, yes, this would result in giant "humanitarian catastrophes", but it is necessary. They need to sort that out themselves, and when they fail, so be it.

    Our European task is to protect our continent from the influx, our task is to keep them on their continent by all means. Instead, we "breed" there the future invasion waves that will annihilate us? How retarded are we?!?

    I actually agree with you. My last sentence was meant to be somewhat sarcastic to point out, africa is nowhere without the Western aid.
