dc.description.abstractThis chapter discusses the complex and controversial issues around overpopulation, a key driver of the environmental crisis. It considers the reasons why overpopulation must be considered and solved if we are to reach a meaningful sustainability. It lists the many misconceptions inherent in the debate, and debunks some of the myths involved. The chapter then discusses what an ecologically sustainable population might be for the Earth, and the humane and non-coercive strategies needed to move us there.
