Since the beginning of the twentieth century, the world's population has increased threefold. Sharply diverging rates of population growth have been accompanied by increasing disparities in income and quality of life across nations. These papers examine the relationship between physical and human resources and population within this context of mass poverty, historically unprecedented population growth, and environmental deterioration. This multidisciplinary analysis,which originated in a study week organized by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, establishes a reference base that is factual, amply documented, and as scientifically indisputable as possible.
