Yes, I agree that overpopulation is an environmental issue.
Overpopulation causes many problems collectively. More population means, more need of basic resources like food, water, etc. These are yet basic, as these kids grow up, more funds requirement, more buildings for space, more of everything in the same place. This might not seem as big as an issue to us now, but in the long run, it will destroy the planet.
Considering the current situations itself, the world is more or less more than required, filled with population, which is in hunt for resources for livelihood. In my locality itself, I see trees being cut, sea lines being extended for roadways and expansion. Moreover these roads are not made of cement, in order to avoid formation of puddles. The drawback here is, the groundwater want be formed as it would earlier.
More of people, means more travelling too. More travelling means more vehicles, which in return will cause air pollution.
Our carelessness has already created water pollution to massive extent.
These all points add together in the bad shape of our environment.
There are NGOs that help in family planning and also share awareness about the results of ones step.
It is important to make these campaigns available worldwide, in order to protect the environment.
I hope this answer helps!😊

Overpopulation is that unwanted condition in which the number of existing people surpasses the actual capacity of the Earth. There are many causes for this problem. There can be a drop in the death rate of people, or maybe if the birth rate increases then also a place can be a victim of overpopulation.
There may be several effects of overpopulation. Let us take the example of India for this. The population of India is nearly 136.64 crores. The resources in India are very limited. And if people start increasing, those resources won’t be able to suffice the whole population. A similar thing happens with coal, oil, fossil fuels, etc. Because of the problem of overpopulation, nature is also getting affected. The issues like deforestation, pollution, etc are increasing because of overpopulation. Even the problem like unemployment is there in India because of overpopulation. More the number of people, decreasing are the number of jobs in the country. The number of theft cases increases because the number of people in India is too much. Unemployment persists in the country and thereafter people think it is easy to earn some money through stealing. It also becomes unhygienic because of overpopulation. One catches a disease, then that disease spreads among many people and their safety gets at stake. Poverty also develops when there are more people than required. Sometimes, people do not get to eat anything and they have to starve for food.
There was a notion that ran in our country that was “Hum do hamare do” which clearly meant to have only 2 kids per family. If people believe in family planning, overpopulation can be controlled in the country. Better education can only teach people the idea and reasons behind family planning.
It is a major environmental concern these days. And we should take some measures to control the problem.
