  • 2. Introduction  An expert in family planning and gender equity, Bill Ryerson serves as the chairman and CEO of Population Media Center (PMC), which generates educational television and radio shows that promote social change. On an individual level, he has long partnered with organizations and policy makers around the world to create awareness of the need for sustainable growth and migration patterns (immigration and emigration). In 2008, Bill Ryerson also became the CEO of the Population Institute (PI), where he helps increase worldwide access to family planning services. The Population Institute recently released a report that explores how population growth could impact development in unstable countries around the world.
  • 3. Demographic Vulnerability  In the report, the organization ranks the 20 nations with the most significant challenges in relation to poverty, water resources, hunger, political unrest, and environmental degradation. The report assigns a degree of vulnerability based on a country’s potential ability to provide for a rising population, with factors such as regional conflicts and corruption impacting vulnerability. Through the report, the Population Institute profiles well- known countries such as Iraq, as well as lesser-known nations such as Malawi. The top ten most vulnerable countries include South Sudan, Chad, Burundi, and Yemen. With world population forecasted to grow from 7.3 billion to at least 9.6 billion by 2050, the Population Institute issued its report in opposition of proposed funding cuts for international family planning.
