  • Description

    A call for the world to pay head to the population explosion, and the problems it presented, was made on Wednesday (20 September) to the United Nations by Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim.

    Making a statement to mark World Population Year, Mr Waldheim said that in the developing countries, with two thirds of the word's people and some of the highest rates of population growth, there are insufficient schools, textbooks and teachers for children reaching school ago.

    Industrialised nations, he said, were suffering the pressures of overcrowded cities which continued to swell and drain talent from low development regions.
