Demography is an essential factor for development since the number, age and geographic distribution of a country's population all determine the demand for its land, water, food and jobs. According to the UN World Population Prospects, the world's population (today 7.3 billion) will reach 8.5 billion in 2030 and 9.7 billion in 2050 if current trends continue.

Economic growth is considered a key driver of poverty reduction. Between 1990 and 2010, the global economy grew at an average rate of 2.7 % each year, while the percentage of people living on less than USD 1.25 a day was reduced from 43 % to 21 %. But how much the poor in a given country benefit from growth – which is defined as an increase in the inflation-adjusted value of the goods and services produced by an economy over a given period of time – depends on growth patterns and policies.
