In this article, we will consider how the population of Europe will change by 2050 based on UN forecasts. This is a more detailed map, like the TOP-30 of the most endangered and growing countries of the world on the European continent given earlier.
The map above shows the change by country. Moldova and the Baltic countries will lose the most in the population.
An interesting fact of the UN forecast is that two “zones” in one more western population are clearly visible on the map of the change in population; according to forecasts, it should increase in the more eastern zone and decrease.
What is interesting, these zones are not too closely connected with economic well-being, because the locomotive of European economic development Germany belongs to the “red” zone. And also one of the most economically successful countries in Denmark and Finland is strangely different from its neighbors in Scandinavia represented by Sweden, where the largest population growth is expected after Ireland and Norway, the country with the third-largest population growth in Europe.
