In one of the latest reports on the FPP in Malawi the director of the IIWD, Jane Mbale Makwera, provides new extrapolations on the development of the Malawian population. These confirm the figures provided in previous forecasts, i.e.taking into account a population growth rate of ( presently) 3% the population of Malawi of about 17.5 million will increase to as much as 40 million, that means a duplication within only 25 years.
The consequences of the uncontrolled population growth in Malawi will be dramatical:
the main source of income in Malawi is the production and sale of agricultural products.

For instance the recommended number of pupils of 60 per class is already exceeded by far – the actual number is 100 as an average over the whole country. Hospitals already lack of qualified medical personnel, in particular of doctors.
As the population growth has dramatical negative effects on humans and nature the limitation of it is of vital importance. Limitation of population growth would need far less resources than the handling of the implications of the uncontrolled population growth.
