The origin of World Population Day
On July 11th, 1987, the population of the earth reached 5 billion. To commemorate this special day, in 1989, the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme suggested that the international community designate July 11th as World Population Day. In 1990, according to the recommendation of the 36th session of the Governing Council of UNDP, the United Nations decided to designate July 11th as "World Population Day" every year to arouse people's concern about population development, resources and environment. Accordingly, July 11th, 1990 became the first World Population Day. Every year, on July 11th, World Population Day, countries will hold related publicity activities to arouse the attention of governments and people all over the world on population issues. July 11th, 2023 is the 34th World Population Day.
