The climate debate: Where do we go from here?

The population of the world is expected to top approximately 10 billion by mid-century and slowly decrease thereafter. It will reflect changes in ethnic mix, as Asia rises and the developed world declines in number, albeit this has led in part to the current concern over migration. The ‘comforting’ point is that world population is now approaching its zenith and we can plan accordingly, and not like we have done, or not done, as in the past 60 years. We seem to have been caught nodding off or even sleeping!



Since 2002 the work of International institute IFIMES is a reflection of our common reality and the need for the world to reach common solutions. Common interests and bonds among different policies, nations, religions, world regions and diverse interest parties are essential. The area of research and work of International institute IFIMES is the Middle East (MENA- Middle East and North Africa) and the Balkans (South-Eastern Europe), where relations among different entities are additionally puzzled by religious, ethnic, national and racial grounds. IFIMES has special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council ECOSOC/UN since 2018. IFIMES is also the publisher of the international scientific journal European Perspectives.
