I doubt this coming population/ density explosion will help that 'crisis' thing:
Mapped: The World’s Population Density by Latitude
Looking ahead to 2100, the UN projects
that the global population will rise to almost 11 billion. This would increase global population density from 59.11 people per square kilometer in 2022 to 80.82 per square kilometer in 2010.
However, the projections show that Asia will not be the biggest contributor to this growth. Instead, the most considerable jump
in population is predicted for Africa, set to grow by almost 200% from almost 1.5 billion people today to 4.3 billion in 2100.
The equator runs right through the middle of Africa and crisscrosses countries like the Congo (both the Republic and DRC), Kenya, Gabon, Uganda, and Somalia.
As Africa’s population expands, this means that at latitudes near the equator, there could be even higher population densities coming. Or course, this largely depends on how the world’s fastest growing cities
—most of which are in Africa—shape up over the coming decades.
