Abstract

This survey paper updates what is known about the linkages between demographic change (changes in age distributions, the size and the growth rate of population, and migration) and the capacity of countries to provide food, to reduce poverty, and to maintain their environment. This assessment applies a longer-run perspective, and considers political a well as economic changes and impacts.
