United Nations' World Population Day Calls Attention to Key Global Issues
Date:7/9/2010

DuPont’s Innovations, Collaborations Addressing Dynamic Needs of Growing World

Wilmington, DE (Vocus) July 9, 2010 -- The world’s population will soon surpass 7 billion – adding more than 1 billion people in less than 12 years -- with more than 9 billion people expected on earth before mid-century. With the population growth, demand for natural resources is increasing, while availability is decreasing. The world is undergoing transformational change triggered by global population growth and the rising middle class in developing geographies. The world is demanding high performance, sustainable innovations to address these global challenges – or what many call “megatrends.”

July 11 marks the United Nations’ “World Population Day,” a time to recognize the dynamic needs associated with the growing global population. DuPont is responding to the world’s charge by sharpening the focus of its innovation engines to meet the increasing demand for food, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, protecting lives and the environment and meeting emerging markets’ demand for science-based solutions. Today, thousands of DuPont people – including more than 8,500 DuPont scientists and engineers in every corner of the world – are collaborating with stakeholders and partners – including customers, governments and communities – to meet these complex challenges that will define the coming decades.

Increasing Food Production

Poverty, drought and climate change are among issues impacting agricultural productivity – requiring technology advances and new innovations for farmers. Most of the population growth is coming from the less economically developed areas. Innovation from better products and practices delivered through open markets is the best way to improve farming around the world, said DuP
