Population Shift: 40 Percent of Humans Will Be African by End of Century

UNICEF predicts that 1.8 billion babies will be born in Africa over the next 35 years, and is expected to “transform the continent, breaking centuries-old cycles of poverty and inequality.” There will be 4.2 billion people in Africa by the end of the century, making them 40 percent of the world population, the Globe and Mail reports.
