BBC News - UN 'concerned' by world population growth trends

Agreed - how to achieve this by fair yet effective means is the key issue though...

To have a reasonable chance of stabilising world population, fertility must drop to below "replacement level".
It must then be maintained at that level for an extended period, says the report.
