How is this an issue? The carrying capacity of the planet, excepting mass-implemented, ultra-high-tech, ultra-compact vertical farming that hasn’t been invented yet, is just 2 billion at 1st world levels of living. If we permit enough wild spaces to allow for a healthy planetary ecosystem, it could be forced to be as low as 500 million.

Frankly speaking, humanity needs a good culling, sooner rather than later. And it will happen within the next three decades or so if we continue implementing “business as usual” with respect to climate change and resource consumption.
