Population growth and economic and social development addresses by A.W. Clausen : El crecimiento de la poblacion y el desarrollo economico y social discursos de A.W. Clausen (Spanish)

This speech by A.W. Clausen, President of the World Bank and International Finance Corporation, was given at the National Leaders’ Seminar on Population and Development in Nairobi, Kenya on July 11, 1984. It was also presented at the International Population Conference in Mexico City, Mexico on August 7, 1984. The message President Clausen wishes to convey can be clearly stated in three parts. First, rapid population growth is a central development problem. Continuing rapid growth on an ever larger base will mean lower living standards for hundreds of millions of people. Second, proposals for reducing population growth raise difficult questions about the proper domain of public policy. Third, in the past decades, and especially in the past ten years, many developing countries have shown that quick, effective measures can be taken to reduce fertility.
