Can Africa sustain its population?

Can Africa sustain its population?

Uganda's population today is 30 million. The United Nation says that number is set to double in the next 15 years.

The East Africa country is in fact one of the fastest growing countries in the world. On average a Ugandan woman gives birth to seven children.

The situation is similar across much of sub Saharan Africa. By 2050 Mali, Liberia, Burundi, Chad, Guinea Bissau and Malawi are projected to triple in size.

Nigeria will become the world's fourth biggest country overtaking Indonesia.

As the world celebrates the United Nations Population Day this week we ask:

Is Africa's big population an asset or liability?
Who should plan the continent's size?
Should governments embrace China's one child policy?
Can Africa cope with the challenges ahead?
