    PresenterPresentation NotesThe number of people living in the Tropics, their demographic characteristics and distribution are an important influence on many of the measures of progress used in this report. the tropics is home to more than 2.8 billion people according to the most recent United Nations Estimates. This is an increase of more than 2 billion people since 1950 a growth rate of 2.2% per annum. Population growth globally and in the tropics has been slowing.

    Currently 51% of children under the age of 15 years live in the Tropics. The age structure in the Tropics differs quite significantly from the rest of the world.

    5.5 billion people

    >51% worlds population

    67% worlds children* Mark Ziembicki/ *under 15 years old

    PresenterPresentation NotesAlthough population growth is expected to continue to slow, based on median estimates of population growth there will be nearly 5 billion people living in the Tropics by 2050. This is will be well over 50% of the worlds population. An estimated 67% of the worlds children under 15 years old will live in the Tropics half of these in Central and Southern Africa.
