What is the relationship between population growth and fragility?

Catherina Hinz, Thomas Nice

High population growth and fragility often coincide: Of the 37 countries with the highest number of children per woman, 33 are fragile, according to the World Bank. What are the reasons and what needs to happen to break this vicious cycle? This One Pager by the Berlin Institute sheds light on these questions.

The One Pager "What is the relationship between population growth and fragility?" was commissioned by the KfW Development Bank for the publication series "Development in Brief".

Focus Areas: Population and development in Africa, International population policies
