Furthermore, the hidden economy can add to the levels of pollution as small, unlicensed industries are set up in peoples homes or on rooftops. Long Span of Life 2.

Increased Intensive Farming As population has grown over the years, farming practices have evolved to produce enough food to feed larger numbers of people.
Finally, and most significantly, the death rate in the less-developed areas is dropping very rapidly—a decline that looks almost vertical compared to the gradual decline in western Europe—and without regard to economic change. They are technically still living in Stone Age, no computers, no internet, no appliances, just nothing. This difference results from the fact that in many less-developed countries almost all women at age 35 have married, and at an average age substantially less than in 18th-century Europe.

Family planning and efficient birth control can help in women making their own reproductive choices. Another serious issue related to undeveloped countries is the little technological development and the few resources they have to prevent illnesses.
If we talk about developed countries, they are post-industrial economies and due to this reason, the maximum part of their revenue comes from the service sector. Making People Aware of Family Planning: As population of this world is growing at a rapid pace, raising awareness among people regarding family planning and letting them know about serious after effects of overpopulation can help curb population growth. Among the industrialized countries, Japan and most of the countries of Europe are now growing relatively slowly—doubling their populations in 50 to 100 years. The lack of basic services like a clean water supply, rubbish collection and sewerage disposal mean that the risks of disease are very high. Conclusion There is a big difference between Developed Countries and Developing Countries as the developed countries are self-contained flourished while the developing countries are emerging as a developed country.

Instead, the less-developed areas have been able to import low-cost measures of controlling disease, measures developed for the most part in the highly industrialized countries.
These industries release their pollutants into the air, land and water. Ironically, it is the discovery of many of these natural resources — particularly fossil fuels — that have contributed to conditions that are favorable to population growth. For example, Niger ranked first on the United Nations Multidimensional Poverty Index for 2014, but the population is expected to increase 274 percent in the next 35 years. Humans tend to use machines and electric power rather than doing tasks themselves, which increases environmental pollution. The weight of water carried can be over 25 kilogrammes.
