Las poblaciones mundiales en los albores del siglo XXI : Desaceleración y envejecimiento demográficos

Abstract : The situation and the contemporary evolutions of the populations of the world are unprecedented. Never have the number of inhabitants on the planet been as high as at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The planet had never counted population billionaires. Never have the populations living on earth been so concentrated. Never has the longevity been so great. Our contemporary history experiences innovations, progress, social advances, but also conflicts, totalitarianism and wars as well as other periods in the history of mankind. But it differs from all earlier epochs in the increased longevity of life permitted by medical discoveries, hygienic behaviors, the establishment of health networks and unprecedented economic changes. However unprecedented, the evolutions of the populations of the world are not limited to a kind of Brownian movement, to an unrestrained agitation exclusive of any understanding. On the contrary, they result from strong logics, which are exercised according to varying intensities and schedules linked to the context specific to each country. Within the framework of this text, two major phenomena will be considered: the world demographic deceleration, consequence of the demographic transition and the aging of the population.
