An update—People in the Balance: Population and Natural Resources

PAI logo

Highlights from the updated People in the Balance database (no longer online) illustrate how population growth exerts pressure on available natural resources, especially in countries experiencing rapid growth. The database provides information about the availability of three critical resources—freshwater, cropland and forests. It also includes data for population growth, which has important implications for resource availability.
