Abstract:The ability of a country to ensure an acceptable standard and quality of life for all its people is directly linked to the balance between its population size and the extent, replenishment and replacement of its available resources. When the population growth exceeds the availability of natural and other resources, the quality of life will inevitably become lower with a resulting detrimental effect on stability. This report on demographic trends in South Africa has the following sections: Introduction - The present situation - Population Development Programme (PDP) - Components of PDP - Community development - Education, the real challenge - Education projects - Population development and the community development strategy within the framework of the regional development strategy.
