Overpopulation

January 1, 1971

The 18th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 18 December, 1970-2 January, 1971 in New Delhi, India:

There is an immediate need to curb pollution and depletion of natural resources.  There must be a drastic reduction in the rate of population increase, both in the more affluent nations where the per-capita rate of consumption and waste is highest, and in those developing nations in which the increase in population presents the greatest obstacle to rapid development.
