It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million. Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been 'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast. We all know what this means. Living and health conditions deteriorate. Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
