an industrial revolution can happen overnight but a cultural revolution can take generations
The thing, with most cases of over-population, the country has entered into a early transition stage of their population cycle. This means that they are now being provided with better medical care and the standard of living improves. When this happens the death rate is lowered because people live longer and the infant mortality rate is also lowering.
It's very easy to say that women of these places need to be given birth control. The truth is, when they were children themselves, and still to some degree today, the chances of your children surviving past the age of five are not good. And, in these places, there is nothing in place to help you in your old age. No pentions or nice welfare.
They need children to ensure their own security and the continuation of their family name. But that's not what they are thinking, because they don't think about it. Their grandmothers and mothers had alot of children, and so will they simply because that is what is the standard in their locality.

Actually, not only you have to make them undestand the benefits of using a condon. You also have to train them to being able to put them when they are totally drunk.
Serouslly, besides of what Serenity put you have to changes other facets of society. It's not so simple, it would really be a cultural revolution
Yeah, I'm Argentinian so please try to undestand my Engrish
Actually we don't have that many babies in the wealthier countries. Actually, in most states of Europe population would fall if they didn't have immigrants.
We need birth control in Africa, China and India, then our problems with population should be solved for some time.
we send 70% of all the countries males to the Sahara Desert, and we would have to fight each other with swords and Katanas, then the last 1000 men standing would be the only ones with the right to reproduce
or WWIII without nukes
^ Or we could do that with women instead. Catfights ftw!
