While the 20th century was the century of population growth with the world's population increasing from 1.6 to 6.1 billion, this book shows that this trend is set to end and that the 21st century will be the new century of population ageing. This first volume in the Population and Sustainable Development Series examines the impacts of the end of population growth and the beginning of this new demographic.
