The Goals and the narrative of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development emphasize the importance of the spatial dimension of sustainable development. Most of the world’s low-income countries are experiencing rapid population growth. Some middle-income countries are also among the fastest growing. Projections suggest a diverging world over the next few decades, with some countries experiencing continued population increase and others, population decline. The population of Europe is expected to fall by 5 per cent between 2020 and 2050, while the population of sub-Saharan Africa is projected to double in size over the same period. Expected future changes in population size in the other world regions fall in between these two extremes.
