Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As far as I know, only China successfully restricted population growth. When people have reasonable life expectancy and women get an education, the population restricts its own growth. Improving outcomes in these two respects, in countries which have not yet made the demographic transition, is the key to limiting population growth.

The situation is far from hopeless, because a lot of progress is going on.
