Kenya's growing population

Earth to hit seven billion mark by the end of October, straining developing regions.

    The world's seven billionth person will be born into a population more aware than ever of the challenges of sustaining life on a crowded planet but no closer to a consensus about what to do about it.

    The United Nations says the world's seven billionth baby will be born on October 31.

    The body has expressed concern over the standard of living for the ever increasing number of people on the planet and skyrocketing demand for healthcare, education, resources and jobs.

    And it is the poorer countries that are affected most, as Al Jazeera's Nazanine Moshiri reports from central Kenya for our special series, Crowded Planet.
