Population -- The Road to Cairo

The world's population has doubled since 1950 and is expected to top 6 billion by the year 2000. This September the United Nations will host a major world conference in Cairo, Egypt, to discuss what to do about the population situation. In this program, Joseph Van Arendonk, deputy executive director for the United Nations Fund for Population Activities, discusses what he hopes will result from that meeting -- and what he fears might happen if it does not succeed.
