Egypt has become the 14th country in the world to pass 100M people.

Egypt's population is expected to hit 145M people by 2030, edging out Russia to become the 10th most populous country in the world.

Are any measures being taken to...ummm...promote "family planning"?

Egypt isn't that bad of a place, don't get me wrong. But right now they are at the limits, if not past, of the population that can be supported by their resources.

So Egypt has a very young population, lots of women will become in the childbearing age in the next ten years. So the growth of the Egyptian population is unavoidable.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

What a terrible demographic spread - with 60+ million under 35 at a glance, and the fact they are already breeding like crazy, their population is going to absolutely explode in the next 40 years. Horrible.

Yeah. And when they run into the catastrophe that's looming, I seriously hope they will not be counting on too much foreign aid coming in to feed them.

Too often we have uncontrolled population growth and then a few years down the road pictures on TV with hungry children and aid agencies asking for money to feed them.
Blows my mind really. It's not like this just happened overnight! Got nothing against providing medical and food aid when there is a natural disaster. But in a scenario like this - got yourself into it, now come the consequences of that.
