The world is expected to face a lot of challenges in the near future including environmental, educational and demographic problems. The anticipated problems which would be critical in my country remain the same and this could be solved only by the combined actions of individuals and the government.
The worst problem that my country is expected to face in the coming decade is overpopulation. The density of population in almost all the areas in my country is too high when compared to the global statistics, and many may not even find enough space for accommodation in future. There are challenges in the related fields like health, education, transportation, water supply and sanitation due to this exploding population, and these are projected to be worse in the next ten years.
The problem of swelling population also leads to environmental issues. To be precise, the vital resources of the world are used up in an unparalleled manner. For example, in order to satisfy the needs of the increasing population, my country has to press higher imports of oil, mine enormous amounts of coal, clear hectares of forests, and use a sizeable proportion of non-biodegradable products. No doubt, this would result in consequences including global warming and climate change. Further expected problems are in the fields of education, health, economic stability and social security.
These issues can be solved only when a co-ordinated effort is made by the country’s citizens backed by governmental support. For instance, when couples can limit the number of children, good governmental policies can mitigate the expected challenges.
To conclude, it is clear that the problems which most of the countries in the world, including mine are expected to face very similar challenges and these crises can be solved by appropriate actions by individuals as well as the state.
