Egyptian Government Sees Population ​Growth as ‘Catastrophic’

December 22, 2017 Breitbart 0

Egypt is the Arab world’s most populous country, with 96 million inhabitants, which is expected to reach 119 million in 2030. Egypt is mostly uninhabitable desert, so people are concentrated near the Nile. Many ​Egyptians view children as caretakers for their parents in old age. Poor families view children as sources of income. The standard of living is declining,​ and the government is promoting the slogan “two is enough.”
