What is the best way to fight overpopulation?
Increase economic development in countries that are more dependent on manual labor and replace with technology, so there will be less of a need for more people (agrarian societies).
Improving their life quality and making sure they would not need a lot of children to make sure that somebody will support them even when they can't work anymore seems like the best short-term solution.
